Abstract

Central nervous system neoplasms are the most common solid tumours that develop in children, with the greatest proportion located in the infratentorium. The 2016 World Health Organization Central Nervous System tumour classification evolved from the 2007 edition with the integration of molecular and genetic profiling into the diagnosis, the addition of new entities and the removal of others. Radiology can assist with the subtyping of tumours from certain characteristics described below to provide prognostic information and guide further management. The latest insights into the radiologic characteristics of these posterior fossa tumours are presented below: medulloblastoma, ependymoma, pilocytic astrocytoma, embryonal tumours with multilayered rosettes, atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumours, diffuse midline glioma and the new entity of diffuse leptomeningeal glioneuronal tumours.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 25. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 24 July 2019.
All research outputs
#697,086
of 14,162,573 outputs
Outputs from Pediatric Radiology
#9
of 1,335 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#24,132
of 274,648 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Pediatric Radiology
#2
of 54 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 14,162,573 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 95th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,335 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.3. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 274,648 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 54 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% of its contemporaries.
