Assessment of Pre-operative Measurements of Tumor Size by MRI Methods as Survival Predictors in Wild Type IDH Glioblastoma

Objective: We evaluate the performance of three MRI methods to determine non-invasively tumor size, as overall survival (OS) and Progression Free Survival (PFS) predictors, in a cohort of wild type, IDH negative, glioblastoma patients. Investigated protocols included bidimensional (2D) diameter measurements, and three-dimensional (3D) estimations by the ellipsoid or semi-automatic segmentation methods.

As an alternative to those patients who cannot be performed an awake spinal cord stimulation (SCS) or had been percutaneously implanted with poor pain relief outcomes, neurophysiological monitoring through transcranial motor evoked potentials (MEPs), somatosensory-evoked potentials (SSEPs) and free-run electromyography (EMG) under general anesthesia allows the correct placement of surgical leads and provide objective responses.
