Abstract
We describe a technique that allows target definition for stereotactic brain biopsy using coordinates calculated on stereotactic positron emission tomographic (PET) images. In this study, PET images were obtained using [18F]-labeled fluorodeoxyglucose, a marker for glucose metabolism. The difference between PET-calculated and actual stereotactic coordinates of simulated targets is within PET spatial resolution. Combined computed tomography- and PET-guided stereotactic biopsies were performed in 11 patients with brain tumors. In this report, we describe two representative patients who underwent stereotactic brain biopsy using the present technique. Because of the complementary role of PET and computed tomography, their integration in multimodality planning might optimize the target selection for stereotactic brain biopsies.
