PURPOSE Using MRI, residual tumor cannot be differentiated from nonspecific postoperative changes in patients with brain gliomas after surgical resection. The goal of this study was to analyze the value of 123I-alpha-methyl-tyrosine-single photon emission CT (IMT-SPECT) in radiotherapy planning of patients with brain gliomas after surgical resection. METHODS AND MATERIALS In 66 patients with surgically resected brain gliomas (33 glioblastomas, 20 anaplastic astrocytomas, 7 anaplastic… CONTINUE READING
