Differentiation between meningioma types has implications in preoperative planning but is seldom achieved by conventional MRI. We investigate a multiparameter quantitative characterization of meningioma in clinically acceptable measurement times characterizing each tumour by its “qMRI fingerprint”. The parameters included are water content, T1, T2* and diffusion maps (MD, FA, MK, axonal water fraction, tortuosity) derived from a diffusion kurtosis acquisition. The “qMRI fingerprints” are distinct for each tumour.
