The aim of this study was to validate the feasibility of Intravoxel Incoherent Motion (IVIM) imaging of human brain gliomas; and to differentiate between high grade and low grade gliomas using IVIM parameters (f, d, D, fD*). These parameters were then compared to CBV maps obtained through DSC-MRI to evaluate the role of non-contrast agent based perfusion imaging. Results obtained showed that IVIM perfusion fraction f could be used to differentiate between high and low-grade brain gliomas
