Image-guided localized proton magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy of intracranial tumors was performed to correlate spectral patterns and histologic findings. Thirty-six patients were examined prior to any specific treatment. Evaluation based on signal intensity ratios showed that all tumor spectra differed from spectra of healthy brain tissue. Ratios of creatine to choline-containing compounds (Cr/Cho) and nitrogen acetyl-aspartate to Cho (NAA/Cho) were reduced significantly in all tumor… CONTINUE READING
