In this study, we performed intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) MRI in 25 patients with histologically proven gliomas, and compared the intravascular fraction f with the cerebral blood volume derived from dynamic susceptibility-contrast (DSC) MRI (CBVDSC). Results showed that f was able to differentiate contrast-enhanced glioma from peritumoral edema by detecting elevated vascularity. Cross-modal comparison indicated that f correlated better with contrast-leakage-corrected CBVDSC than uncorrected value.
