Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a method in which high quality images as well as optimized resolution are obtained without use of X-ray or other ionizing radiation causes that nowadays physicians in all field of interests find it as a theranostic tool for medical application. A concise compendium of the fundamental physiology, physics and clinical uses of unconventional MRI techniques comprise diffusion weighted imaging (DWI), perfusion weighted imaging (PWI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in the setting of neuro-oncology is reviewed in this article. Advanced MR imaging techniques may also provide prognostic information and may be used to guide therapy early on in the patient's treatment, effectively improving outcomes and minimizing side effects, both in the short and long term. Also, we hope that this new technology lead to the development of novel managements and will improve our understanding of the mechanism underlying neurological disorders.
