We demonstrate the feasibility of a 1 H- 13 C heteronuclear multiple quantum coherence (HMQC) MRSI for imaging metabolite dynamics. The 1 H- 13 C HMQC MRSI was performed for the whole-body acquisition of four tumor-bearing mice after sacrifice at 5min, 8min, 30min, and 20hr post injection of [U- 13 C]glucose. Form acquired 4D data set (two spectral and two spatial dimensions), the signal intensity ratio of lactate (Lac) to glucose (Glc) was mapped. When focusing on the tumor, the Lac/Glc value increased with time, reflecting the accumulation of Lac as a metabolic end product from Glc in the tumor.
