Abstract

To evaluate whether the cerebral blood volume (CBV) measurement with leakage correction from dynamic susceptibility contrast perfusion weighted imaging can be useful in predicting prognosis for primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL). 46 PCNSL patients were included and classified by radiation therapy (RT) stratification into RT (n = 30) and non-RT (n = 16) groups. The corresponding histogram parameters of normalized CBV (nCBV) maps with or without leakage correction were calculated on contrast-enhanced T1 weighted image (CE T1WI) or on fluid attenuated inversion recovery image. The 75th percentile nCBV with leakage correction based on CE T1WI (T1 nCBVL75%) had a significant difference between the short and long progression free survival (PFS) subgroups of the RT group and the non-RT group, respectively. Based on the survival analysis, patients in the RT group with high T1 nCBVL75% had earlier progression than the others with a low T1 nCBVL75%. However, patients in the non-RT group with a high T1 nCBVL75% had slower progression than the others with a low T1 nCBVL75%. Based on RT stratification, the CBV with leakage correction has potential as a noninvasive biomarker for the prognosis prediction of PCNSL to identify high risk patients and it has a different correlation with the PFS based on the presence of combined RT.
