BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Studies of brain tumors have identified altered tissue metabolism and water diffusion in MRI normal appearing tissue regions. In this retrospective study the relationship of these imaging measures with tumor grade in gliomas was investigated. METHODS MR spectroscopic imaging of whole brain and mean diffusivity (MD) measurements were… CONTINUE READING
