One hundred and twenty nine glioblastomas and 74 brain metastases were included in this study. FA and MD were measured from the enhancing and immediate peritumoral region. FA values from the enhancing and immediate peritumoral regions for glioblastomas were significantly higher than those for brain metastases. Repeated split sample validation confirmed that FA and MD from the enhancing part is a robust model for the distinction between glioblastomas and brain metastases.
