Vessel Type Determined by Vessel Architectural Imaging Improves Differentiation between Early Tumor Progression and Pseudoprogression in Glioblastoma

Abstract
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Currently available perfusion parameters are limited in differentiating early tumor progression and pseudoprogression with no insight about vessel size and type. We aimed to investigate differences in vessel size and type between early tumor progression and pseudoprogression in posttreatment glioblastoma and to demonstrate diagnostic performance using vessel architectural imaging.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty-eight patients with enlarging contrast-enhancing masses in posttreatment glioblastomas underwent simultaneous gradient recalled-echo and spin-echo dynamic susceptibility contrast imaging. Relative CBV and vessel architectural imaging parameters, including the relative vessel size index, peak shift between gradient recalled echo and spin-echo bolus signal peaks, and arterial dominance scores using spatial dominance of arterial/venous vessel type, were calculated and compared between the 2 conditions. The area under the curve and cross-validation were performed to compare the diagnostic performance of the relative CBV, vessel architectural imaging parameters, and their combinations.

RESULTS: There were 41 patients with early tumor progression and 17 patients with pseudoprogression. Relative to pseudoprogression, early tumor progression showed a lower peak shift (?0.02 versus 0.33, P = .02) and a lower arterial dominance score (1.46 versus 2.11, P = .001), indicating venous dominance. Patients with early tumor progression had higher relative CBV (1.88 versus 1.38, P = .02) and a tendency toward a larger relative vessel size index (99.67 versus 83.17, P = .15) than those with pseudoprogression. Combining arterial dominance scores and relative CBV showed significantly higher diagnostic performance (area under the curve = 0.82; 95% CI, 0.70?0.94; P = .02) than relative CBV alone (area under the curve = 0.64; 95% CI, 0.49?0.79) in distinguishing early tumor progression from pseudoprogression.

CONCLUSIONS: Vessel architectural imaging significantly improved the diagnostic performance of relative CBV by demonstrating venous dominance and a tendency toward larger vessel size in early tumor progression.
