Growth modelling of non-functioning pituitary adenomas

Honegger Juergen , Zimmermann Sanna , Psaras Tsambika , Reincke Martin , Dietz Klaus

Objective: It is still unknown how pituitary adenomas grow over years and whether growth kinetics follow a distinct growth model. Definition of adenoma growth kinetics would substantially enhance knowledge of biological behaviour. The objective of this study was to define a growth model for non-functioning pituitary adenomas.Methods: Fifteen patients who had five or more serial high-quality examinations with magnetic resonance images or computerized tomo...
