This study investigates the relations between MR derived, quantitative parameters reflecting perfusion, diffusion and relaxation, and histological indices reflecting apoptosis, proliferation, vascularity and fibrosis. We show that important biological characteristics of tumour tissue can be probed by multiparametric MRI.
