  • Cerebral infarction after fractionated stereotactic radiation therapy of benign anterior skull base tumors
  • 2019

    • Background: The purpose of this study was to examine the occurrence of cerebral infarction (ischemic stroke), in a large combined cohort of patients with anterior skull base meningiomas, pituitary adenomas and craniopharyngiomas, after fractionated stereotactic radiation therapy (FSRT). Material and Methods: All patients, 18 years and older, with anterior skull base meningiomas, pituitary adenomas and craniopharyngiomas, treated with fractionated stereotactic radiation, in our center, from January 1999 to December 2015 were identified. In total 169 patients were included. The prescription dose to the tumor was 54 Gy for 164 patients (97%) and 46.0–52.2 Gy for 5 patients (3%). Cases of cerebral infarctions subsequent to FSRT were identified from the Danish National Patient Registry and verified with review of case notes. The rate of cerebral infarction after FSRT was compared to the rate in the general population with a one sample t-test after standardization for age and year. We explored if age, sex, disease type, radiation dose and dose per fraction was associated with increased risk of cerebral infarction using univariate Cox models. Results: At a median follow-up of 9.3 years (range 0.1–16.5), 7 of the 169 patients (4.1%) developed a cerebral infarction, at a median 5.7 years (range 1.2–11.5) after FSRT. The mean cerebral infarction rate for the general population was 0.0035 and 0.0048 for the FSRT cohort (p = 0.423). Univariate cox models analysis showed that increasing age correlated significantly with the cerebral infarction risk, with a hazard ratio of 1.090 (p = 0.013). Conclusion: Increased risk of cerebral infarction after FSRT of anterior skull base tumors was associated with age, similar to the general population. Our study revealed that FSRT did not introduce an excess risk of cerebral infarction.

  • Feasibility of multi-parametric PET and MRI for prediction of tumour recurrence in patients with glioblastoma
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging. - : Springer. - 1619-7070. ; 46:3, s. 603-613
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: Recurrence in glioblastoma patients often occur close to the original tumour and indicates that the current treatment is inadequate for local tumour control. In this study, we explored the feasibility of using multi-modality imaging at the time of radiotherapy planning. Specifically, we aimed to identify parameters from pre-treatment PET and MRI with potential to predict tumour recurrence. Materials and methods: Sixteen patients were prospectively recruited and treated according to established guidelines. Multi-parametric imaging with 18 F-FET PET/CT and 18 F-FDG PET/MR including diffusion and dynamic contrast enhanced perfusion MRI were performed before radiotherapy. Correlations between imaging parameters were calculated. Imaging was related to the voxel-wise outcome at the time of tumour recurrence. Within the radiotherapy target, median differences of imaging parameters in recurring and non-recurring voxels were calculated for contrast-enhancing lesion (CEL), non-enhancing lesion (NEL), and normal appearing grey and white matter. Logistic regression models were created to predict the patient-specific probability of recurrence. The most important parameters were identified using standardized model coefficients. Results: Significant median differences between recurring and non-recurring voxels were observed for FDG, FET, fractional anisotropy, mean diffusivity, mean transit time, extra-vascular, extra-cellular blood volume and permeability derived from scans prior to chemo-radiotherapy. Tissue-specific patterns of voxel-wise correlations were observed. The most pronounced correlations were observed for 18 F-FDG- and 18 F-FET-uptake in CEL and NEL. Voxel-wise modelling of recurrence probability resulted in area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of 0.77 from scans prior to therapy. Overall, FET proved to be the most important parameter for recurrence prediction. Conclusion: Multi-parametric imaging before radiotherapy is feasible and significant differences in imaging parameters between recurring and non-recurring voxels were observed. Combining parameters in a logistic regression model enabled patient-specific maps of recurrence probability, where 18 F-FET proved to be most important. This strategy could enable risk-adapted radiotherapy planning.
