Abstract

Purpose To investigate multivoxel proton Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (1HMRS) biometrics for preoperative differentiation and prognosis of patients with brain metastases (MET), low-(LGG) and high grade glioma (HGG). Methods Thirty-five patients (15 HGG, 9 LGG and 11 MET) were included. Proton Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Imaging(1H-MRSI) data was assessed and neurochemical profiles for metabolites (NAA+NAAG, Cr+PCr, Glu+Gln (Glx), Lac, Ins, GPC+PCho) and total Lipids (tLip) and macromolecule (tMM) signals were estimated. Concentrations were reported as either absolute or ratios to total choline (tCho=GPC+PCho) and creatine (tCr=Cr+PCr) levels. Voxels of interest (VOIs) in a MRSI matrix were labelled accordingly to contrast-enhancing/nonenhancing lesional, edema, ipsi- or contralateral healthy appearing tissue and the metabolite averages were reported for each tissue type. Multi-biometric analysis with logistic regression, ROC- and Kaplan-Meier survival analysis was performed in SPSS v.24 and postprocessing with LC Model. Results Across HGG/LGG/MET; the average Ins/tCho was shown to be prognostic for overall survival (OS): with low values (≤1.29) in affected hemisphere predicting worse OS than high values (>1.29), (Log Rank
