Degree of tumor hypoxia and its spatial distribution could impact the therapeutic choices and lead to development of improved treatment plans. This study uses a hypoxia binding T1 contrast agent GdDO3NI, to evaluate the dependence of hypoxia activated pro-drug TPZ (Tirapazamine) on baseline tumor oxygenation and its effect on the oxygenation of two non-small cell lung cancer lines ( NCI-H1975 and patient derived xenograft M112004). GdDO3NI was able to report the changes in hypoxia distribution in the tumor models in response to Tirapazamine therapy and correlation with therapeutic effect.
