Brain edema in neurooncology: radiological assessment and management.

Abstract:

Vasogenic brain edema is a common diagnostic and management problem in brain tumor patients. Molecular mechanisms play a role in the pathophysiology, including abnormalities of tumor endothelium, vascular endothelial growth factor and leukotriene synthase. Edema diagnosis is facilitated by the development of neuroradiological imaging techniques, with diffusion-weighted imaging (DW-MRI) differentiating tumor grades or abscesses and tumors, and diffusion tensor imaging representing an advanced ...
