This pan-European online survey study revealed that clinically working Neuroradiologists appreciate the additional diagnostic accuracy rendered by quantitative MRI techniques. However, the clinical implementation of many techniques is hampered by a lack of knowledge on how to acquire, post-process and interpret results of multiple quantitative MRI techniques including ASL, CEST/APT, IVIM and others. With exception of DSC and DWI in tumor imaging and stroke, the number of indications is also still limited especially regarding head/neck Radiology and neurodegenerative diseases.
