PURPOSE We evaluated the utility of arterial spin labeling (ASL) imaging of tumor blood flow (TBF) for grading non-enhancing astrocytic tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirteen non-enhancing astrocytomas were divided into high-grade (n = 7) and low-grade (n = 6) groups. Both ASL and conventional sequences were acquired using the same magnetic resonance machine. Intratumoral absolute maximum TBF (TBFmax), absolute mean TBF (TBFmean), and corresponding values normalized to cerebral blood flow… CONTINUE READING
