Dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI provides additional information regarding blood-brain barrier integrity, and Ktrans is directly proportional to the level of permeability of the blood-brain barrier. In our study, we found demonstrates that SRS of cerebral metastasis is associated with a reduction of Ktrans values in the early post-treatment period. DCE-MRI derived parameters of may be a promising imaging biomarker of tumor aggressiveness.
