BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To compare the utility of quantitative PET/MRI, dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC) perfusion MRI (pMRI), and PET/CT in differentiating radiation necrosis (RN) from tumor recurrence (TR) in patients with treated glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). METHODS The study included 24 patients with GBM treated with surgery, radiotherapy, and… CONTINUE READING
