MR Imaging Predicts Overall Survival of Patients with Recurrent Glioblastoma Early-on in Treatment Regimen with Bevacizumab

Results of an ACRIN study demonstrate that changes in tumor enhancement on post-gadolinium (Gd) T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are highly predictive of which patients with recurrent glioblastoma (GBM) brain tumors will benefit from second-line therapy that includes the antiangiogenic drug bevacizumab.
