Methods and materials

We performed a retrospective review of four patients with brainstem lesions who presented between 2015-2016 at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, a tertiary neurosciences centre. Definitive diagnosis (inflammatory vs. neoplastic) was not established through conventional imaging. All patients underwent multiparametric MRI on a 3T scanner consisting of T1/T2-weighted structural imaging, dynamic susceptibility contrast perfusion imaging, diffusion weighted imaging and single/multivoxel MR spectroscopy. The choline:creatine (Cho:Cr) peak area ratio was calculated and correlations between rCBV ratio, ADC, Cho:Cr and radiological/clinical follow-up were recorded.
