Perfusion Studies in Pediatric Brain Tumors is a less explored area due to technical challenges of performing contrast enhanced perfusion in infant and children. This study is the first preliminary study reported in Dynamic Contrast Enhanced MRI perfusion involving both high grade and low grade brain tumors. Purpose of this study is to quantify the range of various perfusion metrics in high and low grade tumor as well as normal gray and white matter regions of brain. This ongoing study shows significant statistical difference in cerebral blood volume and fractional plasma volume in high grade and low grade tumor population.
