Want to assess the oxygenation status of tumours using non-invasive, contrast-agent free MRI? In this work we explore how OE-MRI can be used to extract and amplify signal from oxygen gas challenges in mouse tumours. With only dynamic T1-weighted images we can create rich oxygenation status maps that show high correlation with pimonidazole staining.
