Transplantation of cultured human neuronal cells for patients with stroke
The authors studied the safety and feasibility of human neuronal cellular transplantation in patients with basal ganglia stroke and fixed motor deficits, including 12 patients with an infarct 6 months to 6 years previously.
Implantation of brain tumors with Cf-252. Use of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging to guide insertion and evaluate response.
Magnetic resonance imaging was evaluated as a guide to planning and follow-up of Cf-252 neutron brachytherapy in patients with malignant glioma of the cerebral hemispheres and provided more detail than serial CT scans, making MR the preferred method of follow- up.
CT and MR for brain tumor implant therapy using CF-252 neutrons
MR gave additional and different types of information about the tumor than CT scanning based upon proton distribution which greatly aided planning of tumor implant therapy and understanding of patterns of tumor response and recurrence after therapy.
252CF Neutron brachytherapy for malignant glioma at the University of Kentucky and a malignant glioma therapeutic staging system
A proposed therapeutic staging system, using MRI and CT imaging, for hemispheric malignant astrocytomas and glioblastoma multiforme is described.
A malignant glioma therapeutic staging system for Cf-252 neutron brachytherapy at the University of Kentucky
A proposed therapeutic staging system is described using MRI and CT imaging to select patients for treatment using Cf-252 for malignant astrocytomas and glioblastoma multiforme.

The implantation procedure was well tolerated by the patients and demonstrated a short-term benefit in survival of patients who were able to complete planned radiotherapy, and older patients had less tolerance to radiotherapy.
