Advanced MR and PET Imaging: Is it Really Useful in Brain Tumor Radiosurgery?


Frederic Dhermain, MD, Radiation Oncologist from the Institut Gustave Roussy, Paris, France, discusses advanced magnetic resonance (MR) and positron emission tomography (PET) imaging and whether they are useful for brain tumor radiosurgery. He begins by discussing the positive aspects of these imaging modalities but also delves into what makes them difficult for intracranial lesions. He then gives case examples and the challenges associated with each patient.
