Contrast administration provides both improved sensitivity and specificity with respect to diagnosis in neoplasia, infection, demyelinating disease, infarction, and arteriovenous abnormalities. On the basis of results from prospective studies, use of enhanced scans, in addition to baseline precontrast T1- and T2-weighted scans, is advocated in all patient studies in which… CONTINUE READING
