With reported characteristic MR features, it is difficult to differentiate vestibular schwannomas (VSs) from cerebellopontine angle (CPA) meningiomas (CPAMs) in some cases. This study aimed to evaluate vestibular signal intensity changes in patients with VS and those with CPAM on three-dimensional fast imaging employing steady-state acquisition (3D-FIESTA), and to test the effectiveness of the signal intensity change to differentiate these two common CPA tumors. We retrospectively reviewed 21… CONTINUE READING
