Glioma-patients get regular neuroradiological MRI-follow-ups to evaluate the tumor-progression-status. In this study it was investigated whether it is possible to predict tumor progression within the next follow-up period, from progression on a longer time-scale. The T1c- and FLAIR-images of two times 20 patients were investigated; one group having stable-disease at two subsequent follow-ups (ST-ST), the second group showed stable-disease during the first but progressive-disease during the second follow-up (ST-PR). By applying machine-learning (random-forests) on textural MRI-information, short-term progression could be predicted with an accuracy of 77.5%. This novel type of information can have an impact on improved personalized-treatment of glioma-patients.
