    Notes: Summary Thirty-four pediatric patients, twenty with presumed and fourteen with biopsy or autopsy proven brainstem gliomas were imaged by CT and MR before radiation therapy. Twenty-eight patients received radiotherapy. Of these, eighteen fit the protocol for combined clinical and MR post-treatment evaluation. No cases of radionecrosis were seen at autopsy. This study shows that MR can demonstrate tumor response to radiation therapy, tumor progression prior to clinical deterioration, post-treatment cyst formation and hemorrhage. Although MR clinical correlation was not optimal on six week post-treatment evaluation, 4–10 month post-treatment MR scanning correlated well with clinical evaluation. MR appears useful in post-therapeutic monitoring of tumor response.
