Differential diagnosis is challenging due to similar appearance using conventional imaging such as T1 contrast enhanced and DWI. In this work, we use the measure of spatially matching 3D arterial
spin labeling (ASL) and 3D amide proton transfer (APT) in the lesion proximal
regions to differentiate metastasis and glioblastom, in the hypothesis that glioblastom
infiltrates into sourrounding tissues whereas metastasis tumors have clear biological boundaries.
