Breast tumors are heterogeneous with varying pathology between patients. Even with the same diagnosis and treatment, patients can experience differences in response. By studying the metabolism in breast tumors we wish to identify biomarkers that can improve diagnosis and treatment and predict prognosis for breast cancer patients. To find the metabolic profile in tissue samples we use high-resolution magic angle spinning MR spectroscopy (HR-MAS MRS).
