Özet

Purpose: Meningiomas are mostly benign, however atypical or malignant subtypes with more aggressive clinical course and higher recurrence rates can also be seen. The purpose of this study was to determine whether histopathological subtypes of meningiomas could be assessed preoperatively using apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values.
