We present six proven cases of chordoma of the clivus studied by CT and MRI, with special attention to the extent of the tumour and to the signal intensity after intravenous gadolinium. MRI is the best technique for assessing the extent of the tumour but CT is important for showing osteolysis. Our aim was to determine differential diagnostic neuroradiological criteria. Reliable signs of chordoma of the skull base are: posterior extension to the pontine cistern; a lobulated, “honeycomb… CONTINUE READING
