It has been established that 2-hydroxyglutarate (2GH) MRS is important for non-invasive diagnosis of isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) status that holds prognostic value for the patient and is important for treatment planning. The purpose of this work was to investigate whether the threshold determination for identification of IDH mutation could be improved by using ‘control’ spectra from normal-appearing white matter, NAWM , in multi-voxel 3D MEGA-LASER acquisitions. The proposed approaches to threshold determination for 2HG detection in the tumour voxels provided increased sensitivity and specificity as compared with the cut-off thresholds based on CRLB% relative error.
