The study of prostate patient derived xenografts in kidney, bone and liver demonstrated the impact of microenvironment on metabolic characteristics of the metastatic prostate cancer and how it differs with respect to the host organ’s characteristics. Hyperpolarized 13C MRI was able to identify the modifications in the pyruvate metabolism between the kidney, bone and liver tumors before and after therapeutic intervention. This study demonstrates that Hyperpolarized 13C MRI can be used to monitor the real time changes in metabolic profile of prostate cancer and its metastases.
