Mean apparent propagator-MRI in evaluation of glioma grade, cellular proliferation, and IDH-1 gene mutation status

ConclusionsMAP-MRI is a potent approach in evaluating the microstructural changes in gliomas with different grades, cellular proliferation, and IDH-1 mutation statuses.Key Points• MAP-MRI, a newly developed diffusion technique, accurately reveals microstructure-related features in the complex white matter by recovering important microstructural tissue parameters.• MAP-MRI is a potent approach in evaluating the glioma grade, IDH-1 mutation status, and Ki-67 expression.• Compared with DTI, MAP-MRI seems to demonstrate higher diagnostic performance.
