Diffusion-weighted imaging: Tumors typically do not show restricted diffusion. CT: Focal or diffuse mass lesion usually located in white matter, with low-intermediate attenuation, ±Â€mild contrast enhancement. Minimal associated mass effect. Low-grade astrocytomas (WHO grade II) that account for 10 to 15% of astrocytic brain tumors. Often occur in children and adults (age 20 to 40 years). Can also occur in older adults. Tumors comprised of well-differentiated fibrillary or gemistocytic neoplastic astrocytes.
