Introduction: This study aims to analyze the permeability of intra- and peri-meningiomas regions and compare the microvascular permeability between peritumoral brain edema (PTBE) and non-PTBE using DCE-MRI. Methods: This was a retrospective of patients with meningioma who underwent surgery. The patients were grouped as PTBE and non-PTBE. The DCE-MRI quantitative parameters, including volume transfer constant (Ktrans), rate constant (Kep), extracellular volume (Ve), and mean plasma volume (Vp), obtained using the extended Tofts-Kety 2-compartment model. Logistic regression analysis was conducted to explore the risk factor of PTBE. Results: Sixty-three patients, diagnosed as fibrous meningioma, were included in this study. They were 17 males and 46 females, aged from 32 to 88 years old. Kep and Vp were significantly lower in patients with PTBE compared with those without (Kep: 0.1852 ± 0.0369 vs. 0.5087 ± 0.1590, p = 0.010; Vp: 0.0090 ± 0.0020 vs. 0.0521 ± 0.0262, p = 0.007), while there were no differences regarding Ktrans and Ve (both p > 0.05). The multivariable analysis showed that tumor size ≥10 cm3 (OR = 4.457, 95% CI: 1.322–15.031, p = 0.016) and Vp (OR = 0.572, 95%CI: 0.333–0.981, p = 0.044) were independently associated with PTBE in patients with meningiomas. Conclusion: DCE-magnetic resonance imaging·Meningioma·Blood vessel MRI can be used to quantify the microvascular permeability of PTBE in patients with meningioma.
