Correlation between Dynamic Contrast-enhanced Perfusion MRI Relative Cerebral Blood Volume and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Expression in Meningiomas
Academic Radiology, 07/11/2012
Ginat DT et al. – The data suggest that cerebral blood flow (CBV) accurately reflects vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression and tumor grade in meningiomas. Perfusion–weighted MRI can potentially serve as a useful biomarker for meningiomas, pending prospective studies.
