Diffusion and perfusion magnetic resonance imaging in brain tumors

Top Magn Reson Imaging. 1993 Winter;5(1):25-31.


The article reviews recent progress made in the field of diffusion and perfusion magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and presents possible applications in brain tumors. Diffusion, a new parameter, provides useful data to assess tissue structure and function. Perfusion MR imaging gives results that are somewhat similar to those obtained with classic non-MR imaging methods, but it offers several potential advantages.
