Transgenic adenocarcinoma of the mouse prostate (TRAMP)-C1 tumors were irradiated on half of the tumor. Treatment response was assessed by using DCE and BOLD MRI on the 6th day after radiotherapy. Results showed that the Giant cell formed on the irradiated portion of the tumor. The irradiated area showed increased Ktrans and reduced BOLD response to carbogen breathing as compared with those at non-irradiated area. The reduced BOLD response to carbogen is related to the decreased microvascular density, which was evidenced by immunohistochemistry.
