Overview

Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MR spectroscopy) study for medulloblastoma demonstrates an elevated choline level and a reduced N-acetyl aspartate level. MR spectroscopy study also demonstrates a peak in taurine level.[1]

Other Imaging Findings

Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

  • MR spectroscopy imaging may distinguish medulloblastoma from other differential diagnosis. Medulloblastoma features include:[1]
  • Elevated choline level
  • Significantly elevated taurine level
  • Reduced N-acetyl aspartate level
