Multicenter study of intraoperative MRI in pediatric glioma

Takeaway

  • Multicenter database study on use of intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) in pediatric glioma suggests iMRI can be used successfully for additional tumor resection but more standardization would be useful in determining benefit.

Why this matters

  • High-field iMRI during glioma resection in the pediatric population has not been fully validated and this analysis will contribute to further refining and improving this method.
