Meningioma is not uncommon case; however, the differentiation of high-grade from low-grade meningioma is important. The rate of recurrence of grade I meningioma is 7-20%, but in grade II meningioma is 30-40% and in grade III 50-80%. Non-invasive MRI techniques that can differentiate high-grade from low-grade meningiomas before surgery are useful for surgical planning and subsequent treatment. We present a review article and some case studies of low-grade (WHO grade I) and high-grade (WHO grade II and grade III) meningioma with conventional MRI and continue with advanced MRI; we performed diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) with apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value, dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC), dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) magnetic resonance (MR) perfusion and 3D ASL. From these three cases show that advanced magnetic resonance imaging with ADC value, DSC, DCE, and 3D arterial spin-labelling (ASL) is an essential sequence to differentiate high-grade from low-grade meningioma.
