PURPOSE To develop a three-dimensional (3D) segmentation and computerized volumetry technique for use in the assessment of neurofibromatosis and to assess the ability of this technique to aid in the calculation of tumor burden in patients with neurofibromatosis types 1 and 2 (NF1 and NF2, respectively) and schwannomatosis detected with whole-body magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approval and written informed consent were obtained for this… CONTINUE READING
