Title:
Pharmacokinetic modeling of Gd-DTPA extravasation in brain tumors. 
Abstract:
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: The endothelial permeability of brain tumors affecting the blood-brain barrier can be quantified using dynamic contrast enhanced MR imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The dynamics of contrast medium (CM) exchange was investigated in 31 brain tumors (intra- and extra-axial) by fast repeated T1-weighted imaging in order to determine the exchange rates and saturation concentrations. RESULTS: The analysis of CM exchange reveals two different transport processes from the blood...    »
