In the brain application, IVIM is a method capabling of simultaneously measuring CBF, CFV and ADC. In this study, we evaluated this IVIM based perfusion by comparing with the traditional DSC based perfusion measurement in 3 types of tumors. Initial results shows the consistent in CBF measurement between IVIM and DSC based methods except 18% cases which are considered to be contributed by flow effect for IVIM measurement.
