This webinar will feature discussion among experts on the advances in the molecular analysis of gliomas, the role that genetics play in determining the MR characteristics of glioma, and the ways in which a machine-learning approach may be used to analyze the peritumoral environment.  The genetic profiles of glioma influence both the course of treatment and clinical outcomes.  Although tissue biopsies of glioma are the crucial “gold standard” for the determination of tumor genetics, radiogenomics and machine-learning approaches may allow for a rapid, low-risk approximation of genetic profiles of gliomas, which may be helpful in areas that do not have access to genetic sequencing technology or in case of delays related to surgical planning (ie medically unstable patient or difficult surgical approach) or pathologic assessment. Be sure to read the AJR article on this topic.

Learning Outcomes

  • Review the changes to the WHO classification for glial neoplasms that are based on genetic information.
  • Explain how the genetics of glioma influences MR imaging features.
  • Review how the genetic profiles of different glial tumors informs the response to treatment and prognosis. 
  • Develop an understanding of machine-learning approaches to image interpretation including feature selection, classifier types, convolutional neural networks, and accuracy assessment.
