[Abstract] Objective To analyze the value of three kinds of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) perfusion techniques of dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI), dynamic susceptibility contrast-enhanced perfusion weighted imaging (DSC-PWI) and three-dimensional arterial spin labeling (3D-ASL) in the preoperative assessment of brain glioma (BG) grading.Materials and Methods The clinical data of patients with BG in the hospital were retrospectively analyzed, including 48 cases with preoperative DCE-MRI examination and 34 cases with preoperative DSC-PWI and 3D-ASL examinations. The diagnostic value of DCE-MRI parameters [volume transport constant (Ktrans), rate constant (Kep), extravascular extracellular space fraction (Ve), plasma volume fraction (Vp)], DSC-PWI parameter [relative cerebral blood flow (rCBF)] and 3D-ASL parameter (rCBF) on BG pathological grading was analyzed. The differences in rCBF of DSC-PWI parameter and rCBF of 3D-ASL parameter were compared.Results There were no significant differences in Kep and Vp among different BG pathological grades (P>0.05). Ktrans and Ve of BG pathological grade Ⅱ were significantly lower than those of grades Ⅲ and Ⅳ (P<0.05), but there were no statistically significant differences in Ktrans and Ve between grade Ⅲ and grade Ⅳ (P>0.05). In DSC-PWI and 3D-ASL, there were significant differences in rCBF values between patients with different BG pathological grades and the contralateral hemisphere, gray matter, and white matter (P<0.05), and the rCBF values of grade Ⅱ were lower than those of grade Ⅲ and Ⅳ (P<0.05), and the values of grade Ⅲ were lower than those of grade Ⅳ (P<0.05). ROC curve analysis showed that rCBF values measured by Ktrans, Ve, DSC-PWI and 3D-ASL had high diagnostic value on BG pathology grade Ⅳ (P<0.05). There was no significant difference in rCBF measured by DSC-PWI and 3D-ASL (P>0.05).Conclusions The effect of DCE-MRI in judging BG grading is not as good as DSC-PWI and 3D-ASL. DSC-PWI measures more parameters than 3D-ASL, but its safety and non-invasiveness are not as good as 3D-ASL. The three perfusion techniques have their own advantages and disadvantages, thus it is necessary to select the appropriate perfusion technique according to the actual situation in clincial practice.
