Meningiomas, acoustic neuromas, and other benign extraaxial tumors have little contrast with adjacent brain tissue on conventional magnetic resonance (MR) images. The contrast enhancement produced by intravenous administration of 0.1 mmol/kg of gadolinium-DTPA in these tumors was measured on T1 MR images. Acoustic neuromas showed the greatest enhancement (average, 310%), meningiomas the next greatest (average, 180%), and neurofibromas, glomus tumors, and pituitary microadenomas the least… CONTINUE READING
