During the Working Group and Management Committee meeting held in Malta, a brainstorm session was organised by WG1.

During this brainstorm session, all participants were invited to discuss both the advantages and disadvantages of several novel MRI- techniques in six groups:

  1. Arterial spin labeling
  2. DSC/DCE + vessel architecture imaging 
  3. Diffusion 
  4. Spectroscopy
  5. Standard protocol (T1/T2w imaging) + machine learning 
  6. Emerging techniques: qBOLD, SWI, fingerprinting, CSI/EPT

The benjamin of each group was asked to present – and defend the honour of – their technique. Afterwards, all members could vote for their favourite glioma MRI technique, which resulted in this MRI-technique grid. Clearly, Arterial Spin Labeling and Diffusion are the most popular techniques within the group present at Malta. But will this last throughout the lifetime of the Action?

WG1 is focussing on investigating the value of these techniques in the diagnosis, treatment response assessment, and adverse effect monitoring of glioma.
