Abstract BACKGROUND: Diffuse midline gliomas (DMG) are aggressive brain tumours, previously known as diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG), with 10% overall survival (OS) at 18 months. Predicting OS will help refine treatment strategy in this patient group. MRI based texture analysis (MRTA) is novel image analysis technique that provides objective information about spatial arrangement of MRI signal intensity (heterogeneity) and has potential to be imaging biomarker. OBJECTIVES: To investigate MRTA in predicting OS in childhood DMG. METHODS: Retrospective study of patients diagnosed with DMG, based on radiological features, treated at our institution 2007-2017. MRIs were acquired at diagnosis and 6 weeks after radiotherapy (54Gy in 30 fractions). MRTA was performed using commercial available TexRAD research software on T2W sequence and Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) maps encapsulating tumour in the largest single axial plane. MRTA comprised filtration-histogram technique using statistical and histogram metrics for quantification of texture. Kaplan-Meier survival analysis determined association of MRI texture parameters with OS. RESULTS: 32 children 2-14 years (median 7 years) were included. MRTA was undertaken on T2W (n=32) and ADC (n=22). T2W-MRTA parameters were better at prognosticating than ADC-MRTA. Children with homogenous tumour texture, at medium scale on diagnostic T2W MRI, had worse prognosis (Mean of Positive Pixels (MPP): p=0.005, mean: p=0.009, SD: p=0.011, kurtosis: p=0.037, entropy: p=0.042). Best predictor MPP was able to stratify patients into poor and good prognostic groups with median survival of 7.5 months versus 17.5 months, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: DMG with more homogeneous texture on diagnostic MRI is associated with worse prognosis. Texture parameter MPP is the most predictive marker of OS in childhood DMG.

Abstract Background: To determine if filtration-histogram based texture analysis (MRTA) of clinical MR imaging can non-invasively identify molecular subtypes of untreated gliomas. Methods: Post Gadolinium T1-weighted (T1+Gad) images, T2-weighted (T2) images and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps of 97 gliomas (54‚ÄČ=‚ÄČWHO II, 20‚ÄČ=‚ÄČWHO III, 23‚ÄČ=‚ÄČWHO IV) between 2010 and 2016 were studied. Whole-tumor segmentations were performed on a proprietary texture analysis research platform (TexRAD, Cam...

Purpose Texture analysis (TA) can quantify variations in surface intensity or patterns, including some that are imperceptible to the human visual system. The purpose of this study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of radiomic based filtration-histogram TA to differentiate high-grade from low-grade gliomas by assessing tumor heterogeneity.

Background: The interval between progression and death in diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is usually 6 months following so-called pseudoprogression, with a median of 8.9 months and a maximum of 35.6 months. All 43 patients exhibited increased blood volume and flow after radiotherapy, but the 90th percentile of those with signs of pseudoprogression had a greater increase of ASL-CBF (P < 0.001). Survival between the 2 groups did not differ significantly. During true progression, DSCrCBF an...
