BACKGROUND Measures of tumor vascularity and hypoxia have been correlated with glioma grade and outcome. Dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI can noninvasively map tumor blood flow, vascularity, and permeability. In this prospective observational cohort pilot study, preoperative imaging was correlated with molecular markers of hypoxia, vascularity, proliferation, and progression-free and overall patient survival. METHODS Pharmacokinetic modeling methods were used to generate maps of tumor… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Prognostic value of preoperative dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI perfusion parameters for high-grade glioma patients
TLDR
High ve is a consistent predictor of worse PFS and OS in HGG glioma patients, and vp skewness and kep are also predictive for OS.
Perfusion MRI Derived Indices of Microvascular Shunting and Flow Control Correlate with Tumor Grade and Outcome in Patients with Cerebral Glioma
TLDR
This study confirms the importance of microvascular flow control in tumor growth by demonstrating that determining CTH improves tumor grading and outcome prediction in glioma patients compared to CBV alone.
Probing tumor microenvironment in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma during chemoradiation and adjuvant temozolomide with functional MRI
TLDR
A role for rCBV and rCBF at baseline and Ktrans and VEGF levels during treatment as markers of response is suggested, highlighting the variable biologic and vascular state of tumor microenvironment during therapy.
DCE-MRI in Glioma, Infiltration Zone and Healthy Brain to Assess Angiogenesis: A Biopsy Study
TLDR
The DCE-MRI kinetic parameters show correlations with microvascular parameters in vital tissue and also reveal blood-brain barrier abnormalities in the infiltration zones adequate to differentiate glioma prognostic groups.
Dynamic contrast-enhanced perfusion parameters in ovarian cancer: Good accuracy in identifying high HIF-1α expression
TLDR
DCE-MRI may be a useful supplementary tool in the characterization of OC tumors in a staging investigation and demonstrated that pharmacokinetic DCE- MRI perfusion parameters are associated with the hypoxia specific marker, HIF-1α in OC.
Identifying the Association of Contrast Enhancement with Vascular Endothelia Growth Factor Expression in Anaplastic Gliomas: A Volumetric Magnetic Resonance Imaging Analysis
TLDR
The results suggest that the volumetric ratio of enhancement to necrosis could serve as a noninvasive radiographic marker associated with VEGF expression and that this ratio is an independent predictor for progression-free survival and overall survival in patients with anaplastic gliomas.
Non-Invasive Estimation of Glioma IDH1 Mutation and VEGF Expression by Histogram Analysis of Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced MRI
TLDR
VEGF expression is significantly lower in IDH1mut gliomas as compared to the wildtype counterpart, and it is non-invasively predictable with histogram analysis of DCE-MRI.

Comparison of cerebral blood volume and vascular permeability from dynamic susceptibility contrast-enhanced perfusion MR imaging with glioma grade.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Relative cerebral blood volume (rCBV) and vascular permeability (K(trans)) permit in vivo assessment of glioma microvasculature. We assessed the associations between rCBV and
Discriminant analysis to classify glioma grading using dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI and immunohistochemical markers
TLDR
DCE-MRI may be used to differentiate between high-grade and low-grade brain tumors non-invasively, which may be helpful in appropriate treatment planning and management of these patients.
Regional variation in histopathologic features of tumor specimens from treatment-naive glioblastoma correlates with anatomic and physiologic MR Imaging.
TLDR
Image-guided tissue acquisition and assessment of residual tumor from treatment-naive GBM should be guided by DSC in CE regions and by DWI in NE regions to investigate correlations between imaging and histopathologic parameters.

Hypoxia in a human intracerebral glioma model.
TLDR
This model is a representative human glioma model that provides the researcher with the opportunity to analyze the relationship between the degree of hypoxia and vascular parameters, as well as to examine the effects of treatments aimed at modification of the oxygenation status of a tumor.
Vascular microenvironment in gliomas.
TLDR
An improved understanding of the vascular microenvironment in gliomas will help in the future to optimize glioma imaging and to improve delivery of vectors for gene therapy or encapsulated drug carriers for pharmacotherapy in patients.

TLDR
It is concluded that cerebral blood volume appears to be the predictor of motor functionality after surgery and may indirectly suggest tumor infiltration, whereas DTI helps to precisely localize the fiber tracts.
