PurposeThis study was performed to clarify the role of perfusion-weighted imaging (PWI) at 3 Tesla in the characterisation of haemodynamic heterogeneity within gliomas and surrounding tissues and in the differentiation of high-grade from low-grade gliomas.Materials and methodsWe examined 36 patients with histologically verified gliomas (25 with high-grade and 11 with low-grade gliomas). PWI was performed by first-pass gadopentetate dimeglumine T2*-weighted echo-planar images, and cerebral blood… CONTINUE READING
