PURPOSE This study compares the results of iodine-123-alpha-methyl-tyrosine single photon computed emission tomography (IMT-SPECT) with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in tumor volume definition of brain gliomas. Furthermore, it evaluates the influences of the information provided from IMT-SPECT for three-dimensional (3D) conformal treatment planning. METHODS AND MATERIALS In 30 patients with nonresected, histologically proven brain gliomas (glioblastoma-13 patients, astrocytoma Grade III-12… CONTINUE READING
