Growing vestibular schwannomas (VSs) show higher signal intensities on Gd-enhanced MRIs and, therefore, measuring signal intensity of VS on Gd-enhanced MRI may aid in predicting VS growth.

Sterotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for the treatment of VS can be associated with increased balance symptoms, often within the first six months after treatment.
Findings did not demonstrate an association between tumor size and aspirin intake.
The current recommended MRI surveillance schedule includes MRIs at one, five, and 10 years postoperatively

The MCID can be a useful tool to evaluate and compare group outcomes
MRI scans, microsurgery, and radiosurgery treatment modalities measured for quality-of-life impact
Is quality of life (QOL) better after surgical removal of vestibular schwannoma or after gamma knife surgery? Background: Gamma knife surgery is becoming an increasingly popular method to manage vestibular schwannoma. As a less invasive modality, gamma knife surgery should improve QOL over surgical intervention. Study design: Prospective study. Setting: Gamma Knife Center, Michigan. Synopsis: Researchers relied on QOL […]
