Localized phosphorus-31 MR spectra were obtained in vivo in a large series of normal human brain tissue specimens of healthy volunteers (n=36) and various brain tumours (n=52). Tumour types examined included grade II and grade III gliomas (n=15 and n=1, respectively), glioblastomas (n=16) and meningeomas (n=12). An additional eight tumours were analysed during chemo- or radiotherapy. Spectra were acquired using a modified ISIS pulse sequence with a repetition time of 3 s. Voxel sizes ranged… CONTINUE READING
