Predictive Value of Dynamic Contrast Enhancement MRI on a Cerebral Tumor Response to Gamma Knife Treatment
Recruitment status was Recruiting
Hypothesis: the pattern of MRI contrast enhancement after gadolinium injection is different in tumors that respond well to gamma knife.
We are going to acquire sequential T1-weighted images of brain lesions before, during and after injection of Gd-DTPA. This will be repeated before and after a treatment with gamma knife. We will then analyse our results to see if there are common enhancement characteristics between lesions that will respond well to the radiosurgery treatment.
