Brain tumors: a multimodality approach with diffusion-weighted imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, dynamic susceptibility contrast and dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging



Brain tumors: a multimodality approach with diffusion-weighted imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, dynamic susceptibility contrast and dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging



Magnetic Resonance Imaging Clinics of North America 21(2): 199-239



This article focuses on advanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging techniques and how they can be used to help diagnose a specific tumor, suggest tumor grade and prognosis, follow tumor progression, evaluate tumor extension, suggest the ideal site for biopsy, and assess therapeutic response. Advanced MR imaging techniques may also help to distinguish between lesions that simulate brain tumors on conventional MR imaging studies.
