MR Perfusion and MR Spectroscopy of Brain Neoplasms
© 2019 Elsevier Inc. Advances in imaging techniques, such as MR perfusion and spectroscopy, are increasingly indispensable in the management and treatment plans of brain neoplasms: from diagnosing, molecular/genetic typing and grading neoplasms, augmenting biopsy results and improving accuracy, to ultimately directing and monitoring treatment and response. New developments in treatment methods have resulted in new diagnostic challenges for conventional MR imaging, such as pseudoprogression, where MR perfusion has the widest current application. MR spectroscopy is showing increasing promise in noninvasively determining genetic subtypes and, potentially, susceptibility to molecular targeted therapies.
