1H MR spectroscopy was used to correlate the metabolite signals in 66 untreated metastatic brain tumors with the results of Gd-DTPA enhanced MRI. Cubic volumes containing brain metastases of lung cancer (n = 17), mammary carcinoma (n = 24), melanoma (n = 12) and those originating from other tumors (n = 13) were examined using the double spin echo technique with CHESS pulses for water suppression and TE = 135 ms. Apart from trends toward reduced signals of choline-containing compounds (Cho) and… CONTINUE READING
