Volume growth rate of acoustic neurinomas

  title={Volume growth rate of acoustic neurinomas},
  author={Erkki Laasonen and H. Troupp},
Of 79 acoustic neurinomas seen between June 1980 and June 1984, at least two CT scans were available for each of 23 tumours (21 patients); the scans were performed at intervals of at least 6 months. The volume growth rate of the tumours was either moderate, with a volume doubling time ranging from 205 to 545 days, or slow, with a doubling time ranging from 1090 days to no observable growth. No single clinical, radiological or histological feature correlated with any type of growth rate. however… CONTINUE READING
