MR spectroscopy is a powerful technique for understanding tumour metabolism. Chemical shift imaging allows spatial variations in spectra to be observed at the cost of signal to noise and acquisition time. In this abstract we examine the heterogeneity of metabolite concentrations in both tumour and healthy tissue, in particular the onco-metabolite 2-hydroxyglutarate, to ascertain if the benefits of CSI outweigh the penalties.
