There is a critical need for the development of non-invasive imaging strategies for tuberous sclerosis (TSC) derived tumor lesions in order to monitor the progression and therapeutic efficacy of this multi-system genetic disease. In this study, we investigated the ability of multiparametric 1H MRI (morphological T2-weighted and functional diffusion-weighted) to meet this need in a preclinical murine model of TSC treated with everolimus. Results indicated that proton MR imaging was able to capture the changes in cellularity and tumor size, post treatment.
