Spectroscopy With Surface Coils and Decoupling
The investigators propose to use 1H spectroscopy or 1H decoupled 31P NMR spectroscopy to
obtain biochemical information about tumor metabolism in patients, both before and after
antineoplastic therapy. In healthy volunteers, normal tissue metabolism will also be
studied. It is hypothesized that metabolic information may be of prognostic significance, or
may be useful for timing of therapy.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
To obtain high resolution spectra from tumors using surface coils to improve sensitivity.
