Objective: Tumor perfusion is a crucial key feature in malignant gliomas. So far, depicting cerebral perfusion is cumbersome by expensive and rarely available Xenon-CT, 15-O H2O PET, or by less accurate and time consuming MRI. Measuring the tumor perfusion by 128-row CT scanners has being shown useful[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
