  • Brain Tumor Awareness Monthly Webinar Series - Advances in neuro-imaging

    Our next Webinar in the Brain Tumor Awareness Month Series is tomorrow night (Sunday - May 10) at 7 pm eastern. Dr Kathleen Schmainda will be speaking about a new technique for MRIs that she says can tell true progression from Pseudoprogression, and can tell much earlier if a treatment is working or not.. Shoud be interesting and can affect all of us.

    You can join our zoom room at virtualtrials.com/webinar We will also live stream it on facebook but it is easier to ask questions in the zoom room.

    You can see the video from our previous webinars at virtualtrials.com/video.cfm

    Al Musella's Comments: (This is his personal views and are not necessarily the views of the Musella Foundation!)

    This one may apply to most people interested in brain tumors. MRIs are not as accurate as you think they are. Many times the doctors are not sure if what they see on the scan is new tumor growth or pseudoprogression - which are changes relating to radiation injuries and treatment effects. This doctor has a way to help tell the difference. It can also tell earlier if a treatment is working or not, so you have more time to change to a different treatment. Very important stuff.
