Abstract:
Introduction
Accurate discrimination between high grade gliomas (HGG) and metastatic brain tumor (MET) using noninvasive imaging is essential for selecting appropriate surgical and radiotherapy treatments and for determining the treatment response.
Brain Tumors
Any uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells is called a tumor and when located within the brain they are known as brain tumors. They are categorized into Primary and Secondary brain tumors in which Primary brain tumors are tumors that arise from the cells, the meninges or neurons in the brain and Secondary tumors are those that do not initiate in the brain. The most common primary ones are Gliomas and Meningiomas. Gliomas are derived from glial cells such as astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and ependymal cells. World Health Organization (WHO) classifies gliomas into four categories on the basis of their histologic features and malignancies.
