Accurate differentiation between GBM and SBM is of vital importance clinically. DSC-MRI cannot differentiate them accurately using measures derived from tumoral regions. Moreover, DSC-MRI requires gadolinium contrast agent administration. Inflow-based vascular-space-occupancy (iVASO) is a novel perfusion technique without the need for exogenous contrast agents. In this study, the capability of iVASO in differentiating GBM and SBM was investigated and compared with that of DSC-MRI. The results showed that iVASO-based measures within tumoral regions could differentiate them accurately. This suggests that iVASO may be used as an alternative for perfusion study on brain tumor.
