Polarographic measurements of oxygen tension in human glioma and surrounding peritumoural brain tissue
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
This study quantifies the spatial distribution of pO2 in glioma and in the surrounding brain tissue. Both glioma and peritumoural brain contain regions at oxygen tensions less than 2.5 mmHg. Modalities targeting hypoxia to improve the efficacy of therapy may have an important role in the management of this disease.
