Abstract

Measuring local tissue temperature is critical in stablishing a rational approach for hyperthermia treatment of tumors. We have found that the heme signals of myoglobin provide a unique basis for NMR thermometry in vivo. In particular the 5-methyl heme signal of MbCN exhibits a sharp, temperature-dependent resonance that is distinguishable in the tissue spectrum. Its calibrated chemical shift can then reflect the local tissue temperature in vivo.
