  1. 1. Skull base meningioma : Surgical and adjuvant treatment with clinical and PET evaluation

    Author : Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; Meningioma; cerebellopontine angle; translabyrinthine and transcochlear approaches; facial nerve; steretactic irradiation; proton beam therapy; interferon- alpha; PET; 11C-L-methionine; 76BR-BrdU; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : The treatment strategy for skull base meningiomas remains a controversial issue. Because of the proximity of these tumours to critical neurovascular structures, the risk for vascular damage and new cranial neuropathies postoperatively is significant. READ MORE

  2. 2. Population-based studies of brain tumor surgery: surgical outcome and prognostic factors

    Author : Alba Corell; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosurgery; Glioma; Meningioma; Population-based;

    Abstract : Neurosurgery is the cornerstone in the treatment of a majority of brain tumors. Surgery can sometimes cure or delay tumor progression. However, surgery is associated with risks, and adequate information about the anticipated peri- and postoperative course is important for informed consent. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genotype-phenotype studies in brain tumors

    Author : Soma Ghasimi; Ulrika Andersson; Beatrice Melin; Roger Henriksson; Clemens Dirven; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Meningioma and glioma are the most common primary brain tumors, but their etiologies are largely unknown. Although meningioma is usually benign, their intracranial location can lead to lethal consequences, and despite progress in surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy the prognosis for patients with glioma remains poor.

  4. 4. Development and Application of Microarray-Based Comparative Genomic Hybridization : Analysis of Neurofibromatosis Type-2, Schwannomatosis and Related Tumors

    Author : Patrick Buckley; Jan Dumanski; Olivier Delattre; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Genomic microarray; Array-CGH; DNA copy number variation; Neurofibromatosis type-2; Schwannomatosis; Schwannoma; Meningioma; NF2; Chromosome 22; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik;

    Abstract : Neurofibromatosis type-2 (NF2) is an autosomal dominant disorder with the clinical hallmark of bilateral eighth cranial nerve schwannomas. However, the diagnostic criterion is complicated by the presence of a variable phenotype, with the severe form presenting with additional tumors such as peripheral schwannoma, meningioma and ependymoma.

  5. 5. Applications of diffusion MRI: Tensor-valued encoding, time-dependent diffusion, and histological validation

    Author : Jan Brabec; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diffusion MRI; meningioma; glioma; brain tumors; intracranial tumors; undulations; restricted diffusion; time dependence; spherical b-tensor encoding; linear b-tensor encoding; histogram analysis; anisotropic kurtosis; isotropic kurtosis; hyperintensity; conspicuity; white matter; detection; diffusion spectrum; consistency; type; grade; axon diameter; axonal trajectories; Fysicumarkivet A:2022:Brabec;

    Abstract : Diffusion MRI (dMRI) sensitizes the MR signal to the diffusion of water molecules at the microscopic level and thereby non-invasively probes tissue microstructure. This is relevant when determining biological properties of tissues, for example, cancer type and its malignancy. READ MORE
