Correlation of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy with Histopathology of Brain Biopsies
Abstract: The pathology of human tissue can be determined by magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) but it was a controversial field for over 20 years. Now MRS on human biopsies identifies disease processes, neoplastic status, and prognostic variables with high accuracy. The MRS databases were compared with careful and specialized histology,. The MR method is fast, accurate, and robust and for most organs complements routine histopathological diagnosis. Study was performed to evaluate the rule of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy in diagnosis of brain tumors compare by histopathology. A total of 38 patients were examined in this study. The data collected from three hospitals in Khartoum state from 2014 to July 2015. The patients were examined with the own department protocol using Magnetic resonance machine. The study founded that (86.8 %) of patients examined by Spectroscopy have same results compare to the histopathology results. Conclusion MRS is an accurate, noninvasive diagnostic technique for quantifying brain tumors.
