Labeling of glial brain tumor tissue types may lead to MRI mapping algorithm

Takeaway

  • Labeling of brain tumor tissue types to enable development of a multimodal MRI (mMRI) mapping algorithm may enhance management of glioma.

Why this matters

    Gliomas are the most common primary brain tumor and have different patterns of infiltrative growth; identifying glioma grade, determining viable tumor core and growth margins are essential for optimal management.
