Differentiation between solitary brain metastasis and high-grade glioma by diffusion tensor imaging.

We tested our hypothesis that fractional anisotropy (FA) maps of diffusion tensor imaging could be used to differentiate between a solitary brain metastasis and a high-grade glioma. In seven patients with a solitary metastasis and seven patients with a high-grade glioma, FA values of enhancing and non-enhancing parts of the tumour were compared… (More)
