PURPOSE To assess the value of combining susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) and dynamic susceptibility weighted contrast-enhanced (DSC) perfusion-weighted MRI (PWI) in assessing World Health Organization (WHO)grade for brain astrocytoma . MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 94 patients with pathologically confirmed astrocytomas underwent SWI and DSC scans. The evaluation included intratumoral susceptibility signal intensity (ITSS) and relative cerebral blood volume (rCBV) max. The receiver… CONTINUE READING
