Conductivity imaging provides a new quantitative contrast for MRI. In the presented study conductivity imaging is applied in a routine clinical environment. First clinical results of glioma patients are reported and compared with healthy volunteers. In vivo conductivity of glioma is found considerably higher than healthy white matter conductivity.
