Dicarboxylic acids as pH sensors for hyperpolarized 13C magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging

Author affiliations

Abstract

Imaging tumoral pH may help to characterize aggressiveness, metastasis, and therapeutic response. We report the development of hyperpolarized [2-13C,D10]diethylmalonic acid, which exhibits a large pH-dependent 13C chemical shift over the physiological range. We demonstrate that co-polarization with [1-13C,D9]tert-butanol accurately measures pH via 13C NMR and magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging in phantoms.
