Anesthetic conditions may have important effects on the blood oxygen saturation in rodents. However, the size of those effects has not been directly quantified in the mouse brain. We use Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping to provide a direct estimate of the oxygen saturation in the mouse brain under anesthesia. Three commonly used anesthetics, namely isoflurane, dexmedetomidine, and ketamine-xylazine, are evaluated. The effect of breathing gas is also evaluated.
