BACKGROUND MR-guided Laser Induced Thermal Therapy (LITT) is a procedure for intracranial tumors. Minimal data exists regarding post-procedure lesion volume changes. OBJECTIVES We aim to analyze changes in lesion volume during the post-LITT period using polygonal tracing with fusion. Additionally, we investigated the role of lesion histopathology on LITT parameters and volume dynamics. METHODS Sixteen patients with intracranial neoplasms received LITT. Using OsiriX DICOM Viewer, three… CONTINUE READING
