Influence of Peritumoral Edema on rCBF and on Cerebral Function: Analysis by Xenon-Enhanced CT and EEG Topography
It is well known that perifocal edema is frequently associated with such brain tumors as meningiomas or metastatic tumors. However, it has not been definitively decided whether peritumoral edema affects the regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and/or the brain function. The aim of this study was to clarify these points by EEG topography and by tomographc measurements of rCBF.
