OBJECTIVE Oligodendroglial tumors form an uncommon, but distinct, subgroup of gliomas with longer survival, better treatment response, and characteristic genetic alterations. Noninvasive grading of oligodendroglial tumors using functional and metabolic magnetic resonance imaging may be helpful in guiding the treatment approach and predicting malignant transformation of these tumors. We used perfusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging and proton magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI… CONTINUE READING
