The development of advanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging techniques for tumors has not only lead to improved diagnostic accuracy, but has also assisted with tumor staging, surgical planning, and postoperative follow-up study. Recently introduced and/or clinically used MR imaging techniques for tumors, including chemical exchange saturation transfer imaging, molecular imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, perfusion, and blood flow suppression techniques, could improve diagnostic accuracy and provide useful information to guide the management of tumors. It is essential to properly obtain and evaluate advanced MR images for tumors, depending on the specific characteristics of each tumor.
