Dynamic glucose enhanced (DGE) MRI can detect glucose-related events in the brain, however, the influence of oxygen levels on DGE signal remains unknown. Here, we investigated the DGE signal changes under normoxia and hyperoxia on mouse brain, using on-resonance variable delay multi-pulse (onVDMP) MRI. Significantly higher signal change under normoxia than that under hyperoxia was observed in parenchyma but not in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Without glucose infusion, a signal increment of about 3% was found in both parenchyma and CSF from hyperoxia to normoxia, interpreted as related to BOLD effect. These data provide insight into the origin of glucoCEST contrast.
