Some of our Research Partners, Filip Szczepankiewicz et al., recently published The link between diffusion MRI and tumor heterogeneity: Mapping cell eccentricity and density by diffusional variance decomposition (DIVIDE) in NeuroImage.
In this proof-of-concept study, diffusion MRI using our software protocols for data acquisition and analysis was compared to biopsies of meningioma and glioma patients. The results of this publication excitingly provide convincing evidence that there exists a link between parameters from diffusion MRI and specific aspects of tissue architecture. Furthermore, the use of multidimensional diffusion MRI offers an improved interpretation of tumor tissue architecture, since the data it collects contains more information, already at acquisition. This brings hope that this non-invasive technique could aid in future diagnoses and treatment decisions.
