PhD thesis by Pieter Kubben on the use of low-field strength intraoperative MRI for glioblastoma surgery. The thesis starts with a systematic review and focuses afterwards on volumetry, the correlation between intraoperative contrast enhancement and histopathology, en concludes with the interim analysis of a randomized controlled trial.EOTR was assessed volumetrically and GTR was defined as agt;95% removal of the contrast-enhancing mass (including ... They used manual segmentation to measure the EOTR volumetrically, defined as removal of contrast-enhancing tissue as visible on T1-weighted MRI. ... Hatiboglu et al (2009) prospectively analyzed 27 glioblastoma cases on a 1.5T scanner with a single-dose of contrast agent.
