While the feasibility of utilizing 2HG as a magnetic resonance biomarker has been established ex vivo, several different approaches to obtaining in vivo data have been presented. This project aims to assess the concordance of 2HG detection using asymmetric echo PRESS MRSI with IDH1R132H mutation as identified via antibody staining in patients with LGG, and to investigate the relationship of other metabolites detected with this sequence to IDH status. Further research is required before routine clinical implementation of these methods is recommended.
