IDH1 mutation could result in better prognosis compared with wild-type, but the mechanisms remain largely unknown. GABA and GSH are low-concentration metabolites, could not be detected using conventional MRS, but playing an important role in energy production of glioma. HERMES can be thought of as two MEGA-PRESS experiments with the benefit of saving half the acquisition time to simultaneously detect GABA and GSH. The results demonstrated that HERMES is a reliable tool for the simultaneous detection of GABA and GSH signals, and both of them decreased significantly in IDH1 mutated low-grade gliomas.
