Abstract: Embodiments discussed herein facilitate generating a quantitative population atlas of tumor progression (TP) versus pseudo-progression (PsP) in Glioblastoma (GBM). A first set of embodiments discussed herein relates to generating a quantitative population atlas of TP versus PsP based on a plurality of multi-parametric (mpMRI) studies of a population of patients demonstrating GBM. A second set of embodiments discussed herein relates to computing a probability that a patient will experience PsP or TP based on a DICE analysis of a mapping of a diagnostic mpMRI study associated with the patient into the quantitative population atlas space.
