Abstract

To investigate the validity of various approaches to extract quantitative measurements of diffusion imaging (i.e., apparent diffusion coefficient [ADC]) to investigate tumors of the central nervous system. In current studies, the region of interest (ROI) for the quantitative measurements are placed arbitrarily according to morphology. Our aim is to investigate how placement patterns influence the ADC estimation in intracranial tumors.
