Tumor angiogenesis is one of the most important biomarkers of cancer. It can be visualized with dynamic contrast-enhanced MR imaging (DCE-MRI) with pharmacokinetic parameters using diffusible tracer. The purpose is to demonstrate how to estimate pharmacokinetic parameters from DCE-MRI, and demonstrate usefulness of pharmacokinetic parameters for thoracic DCE-MR.
