Description of intervention(s) / exposure
3,4-dihydroxy-6-fluoro-phenylalanine(FDOPA) PET - MRI
Brain tumour patients will be observed from diagnosis until 12 months post treatment
Intervention code [1] 241374 0
Not applicable
Comparator / control treatment
FDOPA PET scans are not standard practice for brain tumour patients.
Standard practice is to use MRI scans to assist with diagnosis and monitor the effect of treatment.
This clinical trial will use MRI scans with the addition of FDOPA PET scans.
