Advanced MR Imaging Technique of Brain Tumor : Technical Point and Clinical Application
The diffusion, MR spectroscopy, perfusion, permeability of brain tumors are now widely used in the research and clinical settings. In the clinical setting, quantitative and qualitative approaches are being applied in practice, but there are several pitfalls with all of these approaches. Understanding and applying the different imaging techniques in a multiparametric algorithmic fashion in the clinical and research settings can be shown to increase diagnostic specificity and confidence.
