abstract

  • Simple planar measurement is an efficient method that correlates well with the more time-consuming volumetric method. The major risk factor for tumor growth is nodular enhancement on a baseline scan, a finding that warrants annual MRI beginning 2 years postoperatively. Younger age and larger preoperative size minimally increased risk of growth.
