OBJECT The management of pediatric intraventricular tumors is highly dependent on identification of the tumor type. Choroid plexus papillomas, a common intraventricular tumor in children, can be difficult to distinguish radiographically from choroid plexus carcinomas and other common pediatric central nervous system (CNS) tumors. In this study to overcome the limitations of current noninvasive imaging modalities, the authors use novel magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy techniques in vivo to… CONTINUE READING
