Different spatial distributions of brain metastases from lung cancer by histological subtype and mutation status of epidermal growth factor receptor.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that the genetic backgrounds of lung cancers could affect the spatial distribution of brain metastases. METHODS CT or MR images of 200 patients with a total of 1033 treatment-naive brain metastases from lung cancer were retrospectively reviewed (23 by CT and 177 by MRI). All images were… (More)
