Advanced magnetic resonance imaging biomarkers of cerebral metastases

S J Mills, G Thompson, A Jackson

Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature reviewpeer-review


There are a number of magnetic resonance imaging techniques available for use in the diagnosis and management of patients with cerebral metastases. This article reviews these techniques, in particular, the advanced imaging methodologies from which quantitative parameters can be derived, the role of these imaging biomarkers have in distinguishing metastases from primary central nervous system tumours and tumour mimics, and metrics that may be of value in predicting the origin of the primary tumour.
