The magnetic resonance (MR) images of 28 patients with surgically confirmed pituitary adenomas were retrospectively evaluated. The examinations were performed on a 1.5-T superconducting MR system using a multisection spin-echo technique with 3-mm-thick sections and a 256 X 256 matrix. T1- and T2-weighted images were obtained in sagittal and coronal planes. The MR findings were correlated with detailed operative reports and diagrams. There were 11 microadenomas and 17 macroadenomas. Ten of the… CONTINUE READING
