[Abstract] Deep learning, a method of artificial intelligence, has been used for glioblastoma (GBM) in recent years. This method is mainly used in the clinical, pathological, and methodological aspects of GBM. The clinical usage includes the prediction of patient prognosis, differential diagnosis, and tumor radiotherapy. The pathological studies includes the prediction of tumor molecular and genetic expression status, and the identification of pathological tissue. As for the method itself, the most frequently used algorithm is convolutional neural network. Other studies included the comparison among different deep learning models and establishment of deep learning models based on different MRI sequences. This paper is to review the application of deep learning in GBM in detail.
