OBJECT The authors assessed the diagnostic value of 201Tl Cl single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT), performed after gamma knife surgery (GKS) for metastatic brain tumors in differentiating tumor recurrence from radiation injury. METHODS Of 6503 metastatic brain tumors treated with GKS, 201Tl SPECT was required in 72 to differentiate between tumor recurrence and radiation injury. When the Tl index was greater than 5, the lesion was diagnosed as a tumor recurrence. When the… CONTINUE READING
