In this work, the feasibility of using glucoCEST as a tool for early detection of primary brain tumours is explored. Mice bearing xenograft glioblastoma tumours were scanned longitudinally using a glucoCEST protocol. The results suggest the intriguing possibility that glucoCEST contrast may be able to detect the presence of cancer at very early stage.
