Probability Maps of Potential Recurrence of Glioblastoma Tumors

Left panel presents an estimated map for tumor infiltration from pre-operative MRI analysis; yellow arrow points to a regions estimated to be relatively more infiltrated. Right panel represents the corresponding MR images after tumor resection and subsequent recurrence (red arrow) for the same patient. Recurrence occurred in the vicinity of peritumoral tissue originally estimated to be highly infiltrated.
