Neuropathological Considerations in Management of Deep-Seated Gliomas
Simultaneous developments in microneurosurgical techniques, neuroradiology, and neuropathology offer hope that in the future effective treatment strategies may be developed for a disease currently with a poor prognosis—deep-seated glial tumors of the brain. The purpose of this report is to communicate our recent findings from a study that utilized a newly developed technique involving magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), followed by pathological analysis, of postmortem brain specimens harboring these neoplasms.1 I will discuss our results in light of current and prior related studies and then postulate possible future avenues for study.
