Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the gold standard guiding diagnostic and therapeutic management in glioma with its high resolution and possibility to depict blood-brain-barrier disruption when contrast medium is applied. In light of the shifting paradigms revealing distinct tumor subtypes based on the molecular and genetic characterization and increasing knowledge about the variability of glioma biology, additional imaging modalities such as positron emission tomography (PET) depicting metabolic processes gain further importance in the management of glioma.
