Knowledge of quantitative values of CMRO2 is of great
interest to follow the treatment of the diseases. In the
last decades, 15O was used to quantify CMRO2 with the
use of PET imaging as a gold standard. In this
preliminary study we show the feasibility of in vivo 17O
imaging experiments with a sufficient SNR in acceptable
measurement times at 9.4T in humans.
