The accurate imaging hypoxia is especially vital for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients undergoing radiotherapy. Multimodality molecular imaging have great potential to acquire hypoxic imaging with high sensitivity and more accuracy. We propose a novel imaging strategy,which combined the hybrid fluorescence molecular tomography-computed tomography (FMT-CT) and the multispectral optoacoustic tomography (MSOT), for achieving three-dimensional (3D) quantitative evaluation of NPC hypoxia in small animal models.The results could not only detect the hypoxia in small sizes of NPCs and lymph nodes metatasis, but also visualize the heterogeneity of hypoxia in 3D.
