MRI/MRS of Brain Tumors
The role of any imaging modality in the evaluation of brain tumors is first and foremost the detection of such a tumor when clinical suspicion exists. In addition, characterization of the tumor with respect to its localization helps in formulating management plans. Finally, to the degree that an imaging modality can help in presurgical (or other therapeutic) planning, the value of the modality increases.
