BACKGROUND: Meningioma is the most frequent intracranial tumor and is often an incidental finding on imaging. Some imaging-based scores were suggested for differentiating low- and high-grade meningiomas. The purpose of this work was to compare diffusion-weighted imaging findings of different meningiomas in a large multicenter study by using apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values for predicting tumor grade and proliferation potential.
