Abstract

Tumor response to radiation therapy can vary highly across patients. Several factors, both tumor- and environment-specific, can influence the radio-sensitivity, one of the most well-known being hypoxia. In this work, we investigated possible correlations between the radio-sensitivity parameters determined by means of a simple mathematical model of tumor volume evolution, and the MRI-based indicators of oxygenation in Dunning R3327-AT1 rats. Prior to irradiation the rats were subjected to an oxygen-breathing challenge, which was evaluated by MRI. The tumors were administered a single irradiation dose (30 Gy), while breathing air or oxygen. Despite a poor fitting performance, the model was able to identify two different tumor volume regression patterns. Moreover, the radio-sensitivity of the oxygen-breathing group was found to correlate with the variation of the transverse relaxation rate ΔR2∗ (-0.89). This suggests that MRI-based indices of tumor oxygenation may provide information about radio-sensitivity.
