The findings on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in 73 surgically verified intracranial meningiomas were correlated with their histology and consistency during resection. T 1-weighted imaging was least useful since most of the tumours were iso-intense, similar to cortical grey matter regardless of histology or tumour consistency. The signal intensity on T 2-weighted images was found to best correlate with both the histology and consistency of the meningioma. Generally, the low intensity portion… CONTINUE READING
