Magnetic resonance perfusion imaging in neuro-oncology

Alan Jackson, James O'Connor, Gerard Thompson, Samantha Mills

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have seen the development of techniques that allow quantitative imaging of a number of anatomical and physiological descriptors. These techniques have been increasingly applied to cancer imaging where they can provide some insight into tumour microvascular structure and physiology. This review details technical approaches and application of quantitative MRI, focusing particularly on perfusion imaging and its role in neuro-oncology.
