Title:
Effect of 11C-methionine-positron emission tomography on gross tumor volume delineation in stereotactic radiotherapy of skull base meningiomas. 
Abstract:
PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of trimodal image fusion using computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and (11)C-methionine positron emission tomography (MET-PET) for gross tumor volume delineation in fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy of skull base meningiomas. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In 32 patients with skull base meningiomas, the gross tumor volume (GTV) was outlined on CT scans fused to contrast-enhanced MRI (GTV-MRI/CT). A second GTV, encompassing the MET-PET positive r...    »
