AIM To investigate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings that could be used to differentiate intramedullary spinal ependymoma from astrocytoma, and to determine predictors for this differentiation. MATERIALS AND METHODS MRI images of 43 consecutive patients with pathologically proven intramedullary spinal ependymoma (n = 24) and astrocytoma (n = 19) were comparatively evaluated with regard to size, location, margin, signal intensity, contrast enhancement, presence of syringohydromyelia… CONTINUE READING
