Abstract Purpose To evaluate magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) in the assessment of brain tumors and grading brain glioma. Patients and methods Retrospective study was done for 42 patients with diagrammatic representations suggested by the author for the assessment of MRS data. Results Pathology grading was correlated with metabolic ratios in cases of brain glioma. Ratios higher than 1.5 for either Cho/Cr or Cho/NAA were consistent with tumors and ratios higher than 2 were consistent with… CONTINUE READING
