abstract

  • We address the development of triple-quantum-filtered sodium MRI as a non-invasive surrogate measure for cell proliferation in brain tumors. We demonstrate that through careful consideration of the theoretical description of the signal, triple-quantum-filtered sodium images of adequate signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) can be acquired in clinically acceptable imaging times.
