Tumor oxygenation response to hypoxic gas breathing is studied in rat 13762NF breast tumors using BOLD and TOLD MRI, with hyperoxic gas breathing as reference. Time course of R2* and R1-weighted signal is analyzed for 100%, 16%, and 14% O2 breathing challenges, respectively. Evidence for decreased blood oxygen saturation (sO2) and decreased tissue oxygen partial pressure (pO2) is observed, revealing different patterns depending on the tumor size.
