  • T/C ratio=ratio of activity concentrations in tumour (T) over contralateral (C) brain. *Data of all operated patients are split by the presence/absence of malignant progression. Patients are reported on elsewhere.4FiAC=fibrillary astrocytoma WHO II. Mann-Whitney p: a=0.086; b=0.035; c=0.020; d=0.004.
