Use of fluorescence to guide resection or biopsy of primary brain tumors and brain metastases.
OBJECT The accurate discrimination between tumor and normal tissue is crucial for determining how much to resect and therefore for the clinical outcome of patients with brain tumors. In recent years,Expand

Percent reduction of growth hormone levels correlates closely with percent resected tumor volume in acromegaly.
OBJECT Correlation between tumor volume and hormone levels in individual patients would permit calculation of the fraction of tumor removed by surgery, by measuring postoperative hormone levels. TheExpand

Cortical hemosiderin is associated with seizures in patients with newly diagnosed malignant brain tumors
Hemorrhage is common in brain tumors. Due to characteristic magnetic field changes induced by hemosiderin it can be detected using susceptibility weighted MRI (SWI). Its relevance to clinicalExpand
