MRS thermometry has been used to characterise two
different childhood brain tumour types at low echo time.
The PRF measure is dependent on temperature, ionic
concentration and chemical exchange. These factors are
useful for diagnosis and prognosis of tumours, as they
relate to the micro-environment of the tumour. In this
study we investigate long echo MRS thermometry to
improve the understanding these factors on the PRF
