Abstract

In the diagnosis of CNS disorders, NMR has already gained widespread acceptance as a routine tool due to its unique image quality and the fact that the disadvantages of transmission computerized tomography (TCT) are not present. This is not yet true for the tumor diagnosis of the body stem, because there are some special shortcomings and a lack of extensive experience [15].
