About this Research Topic
The primary treatment course for gliomas, much like many cancers, is surgical intervention to remove the cancerous tissues. With all organs preserving as much function post surgery is the primary concern, and with an organ like the brain this cannot be emphasized enough. Effective imaging techniques are vital preoperatively for the optimal planning of surgical interventions and subsequent procedures.
This research topic aims to bring together emerging studies in the field of cancer imaging that will go on to form the basis of future considerations, prognoses, and diagnoses relating to gliomas, and how postsurgical outcomes can be better predicted and planned for by cancer care teams.
We welcome Original Research, leading-edge Reviews and Clinical Trials related but not limited to the aspects below:
- Cancer imaging techniques used in prognosis of glioma
- Cancer imaging methods used for assessment preoperatively
- Prediction of postsurgical outcomes after surgical intervention of glioma
- Characterization of gliomas using cancer imaging techniques
- Novel methods, or refinements to existing methods in imaging gliomas
- Design and Development of molecular probes for imaging gliomas
Please note: manuscripts consisting solely of bioinformatics or computational analysis of public genomic or transcriptomic databases which are not accompanied by validation (independent cohort or biological validation in vitro or in vivo) are out of scope for this section and will not be accepted as part of this Research Topic.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements.
