The DWI, MR spectroscopy, DSC, DCE of brain tumors are now widely used in the diagnosis and post-treatment evaluation of brain tumors. In the clinical setting, functional, quantitative and qualitative approaches with genomic biomarkers (IDH, MGMT, EGFR, PTEN, 1p/19q) are being applied in practice, but there are several pitfalls with all of these approaches. Understanding and applying the different imaging techniques and genomic biomarkers in a multiparametric algorithmic fashion in the clinical and research settings can be shown to increase diagnostic specificity and confidence.
