Abstract

DWI is an imaging technique commonly used for the assessment of acute ischemia, inflammatory disorders, and CNS neoplasia. It has several benefits since it is a quick, easily replicable sequence that is widely used on many standard scanners. In addition to its normal clinical purpose, DWI offers crucial functional and physiological information regarding brain neoplasia and the surrounding milieu. A narrative review of the literature was conducted based on the PubMed database with the purpose of investigating the potential role of DWI in the neuro-oncology field. A total of 179 articles were included in the study.
