How to develop a pediatric brain tumour database

By: SPSS
SPSS

One of the first requisites for this cancer treatment database is accurately classifying the tumour. While the vast majority of pediatric brain tumours can be categorized as gliomas, ependymomas and medulloblastomas, altogether there are 12 or so tumour types including subtypes. Classification is very subjective because pediatric brain tumours are often difficult to distinguish by appearance, and there are few objective markers such as those found for other childhood cancers such as leukemia.
