OBJECTIVES We investigated the accuracy of high-field proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1) H MRS) and fluorine-18 2-fluoro-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18) F-FDG-PET) for diagnosis of glioma progression following tumor resection, stereotactic radiation, and chemotherapy. METHODS Twelve post-therapy patients with histology proven(More)
OBJECTIVES The ability to differentiate between brain tumor progression and radiation therapy induced necrosis is critical for appropriate patient management. In order to improve the differential diagnosis, we combined fluorine-18 2-fluoro-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)F-FDG PET), proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H MRS) and(More)
We report a series of six cases, admitted over a single weekend, following nasal inhalation of street drugs and exhibiting markedly atypical presentations. Clenbuterol, a beta2 adrenoceptor agonist, was identified as a contaminant. Increased awareness of the effects of specific adulterants is essential to the adequate management of these patients.
