Abstract

Tl SPECT is used successfully in the diagnosis of recurrent supratentorial glioma and in the evaluation of its response to chemotherapy. However, different methods are used to measure relative tracer uptake in tumour and background. The objective of this study was to assess the interobserver variability of such methods, and, if possible, to provide nomograms for data conversion.
