The purpose of this study was to develop a technique for differentiating between recurrent brain tumors and treatment-related changes, such as radiation necrosis, using dynamic MRI. Ninety-five patients with intracranial mass lesions were evaluated using T1-weighted fast spin-echo (FSE) MRI at 1.5 T. Pathologies included treatment-related changes (n = 32), primary tumors (n = 41), metastatic tumors (n = 5), meningiomas (n = 4), and mixed primary/treatment related changes (n = 13).
