ABSTRACT

Much can be learned by analyzing the pattern of contrast enhancement on MR or CT.

No MeSH data available.


Dural Tail. Meningioma.  Most of the thin and relatively curvilinear enhancement extending from the edge of a meningioma is due to vasocongestion and edema, rather than neoplastic infiltration.  The bulk of the neoplastic tissue is in the hemispheric extraaxial mass.  Nonetheless, the dural tail must be carefully evaluated at surgery to avoid leaving neoplastic tissue behind.
