Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

As an aid in diagnosing oligodendroglioma tumors and predicting the response of an oligodendroglioma to therapy.

 

The test may be useful in tumors with a complex "hybrid" morphology requiring differentiation from pure astrocytomas to support the presence of oligodendroglial differentiation/lineage.(8)

 

The test is indicated when a diagnosis of oligodendroglioma, both low-grade World Health Organization ([WHO], grade II) and anaplastic (WHO, grade III) is rendered. The test also is strongly recommended in mixed oligoastrocytomas.
