MR Spectroscopy

MR spectroscopy is an evaluation of metabolic products of the brain and comparing their ratios, different brain lesions can be categorized better to differentiate tumors from non-neoplastic processes such as infection or inflammation. This can influence treatment options including the need for neurosurgical intervention, and can also help guide surgery for the optimal results from biopsy.
