Lateral extent of internal auditory canal involvement by acoustic neuromas: a surgical-radiologic correlation.

Abstract

The sensitivity of gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is such that inflamed areas of individual nerves can be visualized. Given this, might the lateral extent of an acoustic neuroma in the internal auditory canal be inaccurately depicted by MRI with gadolinium contrast due to variable enhancement in inflamed neural tissues? The authors… (More)
