Measuring brain perfusion using Intravoxel Incoherent Motion (IVIM) MRI has gained interest recently. We present results demonstrating that IVIM perfusion fraction map contrast can be increased in human brain tumors using a T2 magnetization preparation, suppressing cerebrospinal fluid but recovering blood signal, therefore improving lesion detection.
