Magnetic resonance imaging of intracranial tumors using gadolinium-DTPA. Initial experience with fast imaging.

One hundred and fifty gadolinium(Gd)-DTPA studies in patients with intracranial tumors were performed. In meningiomas (n = 37) Gd-DTPA is useful to delineate isointense tumors. In acoustic neuromas (n = 16) Gd-DTPA helps to identify intracanalicular tumor tissue. In pituitary adenomas (n = 16) para- or suprasellar tumor extension can be better appreciated… CONTINUE READING
