HYPOTHESIS AND SAMPLE SIZE The tumor delineated by FDG-PET is significantly different from the delineation achieved by MR T1 contrast weighted images in glioblastoma; expecting a standard error of 12.5 % (a confidence interval of 25%), with a confidence level set at 95%, a sample size of 15 patients would be accrued in the study.
