Abstract

Characterization of intracranial mass lesions, based on structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) alone may be difficult. In such cases Proton Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (1H-MRS) along with other non-invasive techniques represents an advance in the specificity of brain lesion diagnosis. In vivo proton MR spectroscopy was useful in a) differentiating neoplasm from non- neoplastic lesions, b) differentiating low grade from high grade neoplasms, c) differentiating recurrence of the tumour from radiation necrosis and d) differentiating cystic tumours from cerebral abscesses.
