MRI is routinely performed to detect recurrence in patients with primary brain tumors, but it may not differentiate recurrent tumor from radiation-induced necrosis reliably. Thallium-201 single-photon emission computed tomography ((201)Tl-SPECT) might be useful in distinguishing between these two clinical entities. In a retrospective study (201)Tl-SPECT studies with corresponding MRI studies in 19 patients with clinical or radiological suspicion of high-grade tumor recurrence were reviewed. The… CONTINUE READING
