In the vast majority of studies that address the role of surgery in the management of high-grade gliomas, the degree of tumor removal accomplished is solely based on the intraoperative perception of the neurosurgeon. Despite its fundamental importance for a comparison of different treatment modalities, little systematic effort has been made to evaluate the residual gross tumor by neuroimaging methods immediately after surgery. We report the results of a prospective study using contrast-enhanced… CONTINUE READING
