Sammanfattning : Gliomas are common primary brain tumours that occur as low-grade (LGG) and high-grade gliomas (HGG). Typically occurring in younger adults, LGG has an indolent course with a median survival of 5-10 years, but carries an inherent potential for transforming into HGG. LÄS MER
2. Preoperative MRI and PET in suspected low-grade gliomas : Radiological, neuropathological and clinical intersections
Sammanfattning : Background: Gliomas are neuroepithelial tumours classified by cell type and grade. In adults, low-grade gliomas are comprised mainly of astrocytomas and oligodendrogliomas grade II. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: Writing is a cognitively and linguistically complex task, therefore sensitive to impairment caused by the presence and surgical removal of low-grade glioma or presence of post-stroke aphasia. Purposes: The overall aim of the thesis was to investigate the changes in writing processes, text characteristics and spelling caused by post-stroke aphasia or low-grade glioma. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: Low-grade glioma (LGG) is a slow-growing brain tumour often situated in or near areas involved in language and/or cognitive functions. Consequently, there is a risk that patients develop language impairments due to tumour growth or surgical resection. LÄS MER
5. Cognitive Deficits Reflecting Diffuse and Focal Brain Lesions Caused by Slow Growing Brain Tumors - Low-grade Gliomas
Sammanfattning : The overall purpose was to characterize the impact that low-grade glioma (LGG) – a type of slowly growing brain tumor – has on cognitive functions. Paper I was an in-depth analysis of cognitive dysfunction of patients with histological proven LGG. LÄS MER
