The definition of meningioma growth adopted in this study was absolute growth rate ≥2 cm3/year OR absolute growth rate ≥1 cm3/year AND relative growth rate ≥30%/year. The decision to use this definition was based on a joint longitudinal and time-to-event model and subsequent classification and regression tree analysis. The online tool provided in this page is to help determine whether the incidental meningioma being assessed has met a meningioma growth endpoint as defined above.
