    Combined use of contemporary radiological modalities, particularly integration of structural, metabolic, and functional imaging, provides optimal multifaceted information for detailed characterization of intracranial gliomas. It allows differentiation of the tumor from non-neoplastic pathology, its non-invasive histopathological typing and grading, prediction of patient prognosis and clinical course of the disease, detailed planning of surgical resection or biopsy, critical postoperative assessment of the residual lesion, effective surveillance during follow-up with evaluation of effectiveness of the adjuvant therapy and timely identification of recurrence, and even insights into molecular signatures of the neoplasms. Therefore, advanced neuroimaging is one of the most important cornerstones of the modern neuro-oncology.
