- Or unresectable, and the largest tumor diameter (contrast enhancement) must be
less than 5 cm on MRI

2. In all cases, the diagnosis must be confirmed by a pathologist. In patients for whom
surgery is not possible, the diagnosis is confirmed by a biopsy of tumor tissue.

3. Methylation status of MGMT gene promoter is known

4. Patients who have undergone resection should have received an MRI or a scan after
surgery in order to visualize residual tumor. If not, the operative report must be

5. Surgery or biopsy must have occurred 45 days before the start of radiotherapy.

6. WHO ? 2

7. Age ? 18 years

8. Signed Consent collected before any specific procedure in the study

9. Patient member in a national insurance scheme

Exclusion Criteria:

1. Signs of hemorrhage on pre-radiotherapy MRI preventing a good spectrometric analysis

2. Patient with multifocal glioblastoma

3. Tumor located within 2 cm of the optic chiasm

4. Patient with leptomeningeal metastases,

5. patients prone to epileptic seizures despite treatment with anticonvulsant

6. Patients who received other previous treatment for glioblastoma multiforme

7. Abnormal haematological results at inclusion with:

- Neutrophils < 1500/mm3

- Blood-platelets < 100000/mm3

8. Severe or chronic renal insufficiency (creatinin clearance ? 30 ml/min calculated
using Cockroft-Gault's formula

9. Patient unable to follow procedures, visits, examinations described in the study

10. Any usual formal indication against imaging examinations (important claustrophobia,
pace maker ...)

11. Pregnant women or nursing mothers can not participate in the study. Women of

12. Men and women of childbearing age must use effective contraception at study entry and

disease in medical history)

15. Any other medical conditions making the inclusion of the patient in the study
