Arterial Spin-Labeling and DSC Perfusion Metrics Improve Agreement in Neuroradiologists Clinical Interpretations of Posttreatment High-Grade Glioma Surveillance MR Imaging--An Institutional Experience [BRAIN TUMOR IMAGING]

CONCLUSIONS: Adding perfusion to contrast-enhanced MR imaging improved interrater agreement, rater agreement with consensus, and rater confidence in the interpretation of posttreatment high-grade glioma MR imaging, with the highest agreement and confidence scores seen with DSC-fractional tumor burden. Perfusion MR imaging also resulted in interpretation changes that could change therapeutic management in up to 20% of patients.
