BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Numerous different parameters measured by perfusion MR imaging can be used for characterizing gliomas. Parameters derived from 3 different analyses were correlated with histopathologically confirmed grade in gliomas to determine which parameters best predict tumor grade. METHODS Seventy-four patients with gliomas underwent dynamic susceptibility contrast-enhanced MR imaging (DSC MR imaging). Data were analyzed by 3 different algorithms. Analysis 1 estimated relative… CONTINUE READING
