Abstract

One hundred and forty patients with cerebral neoplasms were examined in a 0.12-Tesla prototype resistive NMR proton imaging device by partial saturation technique. NMR was superior to CT in tumor and edema localization and equal to CT in tumor and edema detection. NMR, however, was not able to clearly separate tumor from edema, a separation that contrast enhanced CT achieved.
