Perfusion Studies in
Pediatric Brain Tumors is a less explored area due to technical challenges of
performing contrast enhanced perfusion in infant and children. This study is
the first preliminary study reported in Dynamic Contrast Enhanced MRI perfusion
involving both high grade and low grade brain tumors. Purpose of this study is
to quantify the range of various perfusion metrics in high and low grade tumor
as well as normal gray and white matter regions of brain. This ongoing study
shows significant statistical difference in cerebral blood volume and
fractional plasma volume in high grade and low grade tumor population.
