PURPOSE To determine if short echo time (TE) (1)H magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) can distinguish between intracranial metastases and glioblastomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS TE 30-msec spectra were acquired (1.5 T) from voxels entirely within tumors from 23 glioblastoma patients and 24 metastases patients (3 breast carcinomas, 1 bladder carcinoma, 8 lung carcinomas, 3 probable lung carcinomas, 6 melanomas, 1 stomach carcinoma, and 2 undetermined). Spectra were analyzed quantitatively… CONTINUE READING
