External validation and recalibration of an incidental meningioma prognostic model – IMPACT

As a result of the increased use of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, the prevalence of incidental findings on brain scans is increasing. Meningioma, the most common primary brain tumour, is a frequently encountered incidental finding, with an estimated prevalence of 3/1000. The management of incidental meningioma varies widely with clinical and radiological active monitoring being the most accepted method by clinicians. Duration of monitoring and time intervals for scanning and clinical assessment, however, are not well defined. To this end, we have recently developed a statistical model of progression risk based on single-centre retrospective data. The model – IMPACT (Incidental Meningioma: Prognostic Analysis Using Patient Comorbidity and MRI Tests) employs baseline clinical and imaging features to categorise the patient with an incidental meningioma into one of three risk groups: low-, medium- and high-risk with a suitable active monitoring strategy advised based
