Identifying genotype-phenotype correlations for neurofibromas with whole-body imaging

Takeaway

  • Whole-body MRI was used to link neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) genotype with the phenotype of radiomic feature pattern for nerve sheath tumors.

Why this matters

    Genotype-phenotype correlations with imaging tools have potential for tracking the growth behavior and malignant transformation of NF1, for risk stratification and management in a clinical setting.
