Dynamic contrast material-enhanced computed tomographic images of intracranial meningioma were analyzed by using both distributed-parameter and conventional compartmental tracer kinetic models. The distributed-parameter models were found to yield consistently better fitting of data sets than were conventional compartmental models. Although linear correlations were found between the kinetic parameters of the two models, some of these parameters (such as perfusion and mean transit time) did not correspond quantitatively. For all models, the kinetic parameters associated with the extravasation of tracer were found to be distinctly higher in meningiomas than in normal white- and gray-matter tissues.
