MR spectroscopy imaging reveals effects of targeted treatment of mutant IDH1 gliomas

Using a novel imaging method, a Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) research team is investigating the mechanisms behind a potential targeted treatment for a subtype of the deadly brains tumors called gliomas. In their report published in Nature Communications, the researchers describe using magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) imaging—which reflects metabolic rather than structural aspects of tissues—to
