Abstract

This article presents an overview of advanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging techniques using contrast media in neuroimaging, focusing on T2-weighted dynamic susceptibility contrast MR imaging and T1-weighted dynamic contrast-enhanced MR imaging. Image acquisition and data processing methods and their clinical application in brain tumors, stroke, dementia, and multiple sclerosis are discussed.
