Using a TrueFISP sequence we implemented a non-invasive assay for stage classification of bladder tumors using a orthotopic murine bladder cancer model. Because generation of this tumor model is achieved by administration of carcinogenic agents it is naturally heterogeneous. The imaging method proposed allows accurate assessment of tumor burden and provides a tool for randomization to experimental treatments.
