A cohort of patients with untreated cerebral gliomas underwent consecutive [18F]-FET-PET and sodium MRI exams. It is shown that quantitative results from multiple quantum filtered sodium MRI using the enhanced SISTINA sequence offer access to the metabolic properties of tumours beyond what is observed by [18F]-FET-PET alone, thus presenting the potential to serve as an additional marker in tumour diagnostics.
