Research Study Description

This pilot clinical trial studies fluorine F 18 fluorothymidine (FLT) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) in measuring cell proliferation in patients with brain tumors. Comparing results of diagnostic procedures done before, during, and after treatment may help doctors measure tumor growth and plan the best treatment.
