Title: QUANTITATIVE DIFFERENTIATION OF TUMOR HETEROGENEITY USING DIFFUSION MR IMAGING DATA
Abstract:
Provided herein are methods for imaging and diagnosing at least one disorder in a patient utilizing diffusion basis spectrum imaging MRI with extended isotropic spectrum (DBSI-EIS). The methods may be used as a tool to image and diagnose heterogeneities within tumors. As a result, different tumor types can be detected, distinguished from one another, and individually quantified without the need to inject exogenous contrast agents.
