Abstract

The utility of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) in diagnosis and evaluation of treatment response to human brain tumors has been widely documented. The role of MRS in tumor classification, tumors versus nonneoplastic lesions, prediction of survival, treatment planning, monitoring of therapy, and post-therapy evaluation is discussed. This article delineates the need for standardization and further study in order for MRS to become widely used as a routine clinical tool.
