Variations in T1 and T2* are potentially valuable MRI tools to follow changes in tumor oxygenation. T2* is sensitive to the relative Hb/HbO2 ratio in vessel, while T1 change is sensitive to dissolved oxygen which acts as a T1-shortening paramagnetic contrast agent. The aim of the current work is to investigate the quantitative aspect of a new oxygen mapping method: MOBILE. Two tumor models were submitted to (i) hyperoxic challenges induced by carbogen breathing and (ii) hypoxic challenges induced by Combetastatin A-4 Phosphate. Actual pO2 values were obtained by EPR oximetry and significantly correlated to Lipids R1 values.
