Abstract

Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) has an average survival rate of 12 months, making it the most aggressive form of brain tumor, and unfortunately it is also the most common brain tumor found in humans. GBM can also occur in any lobe or structure of the brain, which could possibly have an effect on the patient’s long term survival. We pursued this line of inquiry by doing an analysis in the brain images to ensure that the images were an accurate representation of the subject and using FreeView we labeled each subject with the location of the tumor. Using these labels we are doing a statistical analysis of the location of the tumor compared to days of survival to find which, if any lobes or structures of the brain have a significant difference in survival. The results we get from this analysis will be presented and discussed at IMSAloquium
