Spin-echo echo-planar perfusion prior to chemoradiation is a strong independent predictor of progression-free and overall survival in newly diagnosed glioblastoma

Abstract

Spin-echo echo planar (EP) perfusion weighted imaging (SE-PWI) has been demonstrated to be more selective than gradient-echo EP PWI for blood volume in microvessels the size of glioma neocapillaries, but it has not been comprehensively studied in human clinical use. We assessed whether SE-PWI before and after initiating chemoradiation can stratify patients… (More)
