Arterial spin labeling (ASL) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging could be used to assess the tumor blood flow (TBF). To distinguish glioblastoma (GBM) from brain metastasis, we compared TBF between the two groups by using visual grading and quantitative analyses. Both intratumoral and peritumoral blood flow were significantly higher in GBM than in brain metastasis. We propose that ASL-TBF can aid in differentiating GBM from brain metastasis either by qualitative or by quantitative methods.
