Abstract
Gliomas are characterized by an inherent diffuse and irregular morphology that prevents defining a boundary between tumor and healthy tissue, both in imaging assessment and surgical field. The effective identification of the extent of the disease in diffuse and multiple gliomas is crucial for their management but doing so by radiological means can be challenging. We present a broad spectrum of diffuse and multiple gliomas using18F-Fluorocholine PET/CT, demonstrating the potential of metabolic imaging in the evaluation of these gliomas, with implications in patient clinical management and outcome.
