In this study, pretreatment dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE-MRI) data was analyzed using the Tofts model (TM), extended Tofts model (ETM), and two compartment exchange model (2CXM) to quantify perfusion-related quantitaive imaging metrics in papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) patients. The histopathological features of aggressiveness were used as the standard of reference. The results indicated that the ETM provided better fit among the models. The ETM Ktrans values were able to distinguish between aggressive and non-aggressive tumors. The study concludes that pretreatment perfusion-related metric can be useful biomarkers for stratifying tumor aggressiveness in PTC patients.
