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.
