Cerebral metabolic rate of oxygen (CMRO2) is one of the characteristics utilized to investigate metabolic changes in tumor oxygenation under different baseline physiologies. Based on simultaneous BOLD-ASL measurements, relative CMRO2 in hyperoxia in glioblastoma (GBM) were quantitatively evaluated. Elevated BOLD and reduced CBF signal changes during 100% oxygen breathing were observed in glioblastoma. Our data validated the coupling between BOLD and CBF in Davis model in GBM patients. Remarkably, oxygen-induced relative CMRO2 estimated from these measurements showed a significant increase (44%) in tumor and peritumoral regions. It implies that hyperbaric oxygen administration manipulates the oxygenation metabolism in cancer cells.
