To evaluate the potential of 9.4 T imaging in distinguishing normal and neoplastic tissues, we examined the progressive growth of human colon and prostate adenocarcinoma xenografts in nude mice. Images were obtained with a resolution of 100 X 100 X 650 μm, and tumors were clearly distinguished from normal tissue with high contrast. These results demonstrate the feasibility of detecting small human tumors in live nude mice with microscopic resolution at 9.4 T.
