Contrast enhanced MRI including perfusion weighted imaging adds to the information available from conventional MRI sequences and is being routinely integrated into magnetic resonance protocols for brain tumours imaging.
With integration of newer imaging techniques like diffusion weighted imaging, perfusion weighted imaging and MR spectroscopy, a high level of diagnostic confidence can be achieved in characterization of brain tumours thus significantly reducing patient morbidity and mortality.
