BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Vestibular schwannomas (VS) may be difficult to differentiate from cerebellopontine angle (CPA) meningiomas. Demonstration of microhemorrhages in VS on T2*-weighted gradient-echo (GRE) sequences may have potential value to differentiate VS from CPA meningiomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this prospective study of 20 patients, MR imaging was performed with T2*-weighted GRE in addition to all basic sequences. Histopathologic examination was performed after surgery… CONTINUE READING
