Deuterium (2H) magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is a novel metabolic imaging method that can measure aberrant glucose metabolism in cancer. In this abstract, we use 2H MRS to measure metabolic changes in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells after treatment with cisplatin. We show that this method is sensitive to differences in lactate levels, produced via glycolysis of deuterium-enriched glucose at 7T. These studies demonstrate the potential of 2H MRS to monitor chemotherapeutic response.
