Diffusion-weighted imaging with calculated apparent diffusion coefficient of enhancing extra-axial masses.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Sometimes intracranial contrast-enhancing tumors like meningiomas, metastases, lymphomas, and schwannomas can mimic each other. It was the aim of the present study to investigate if intracranial contrast-enhancing lesions can be reliably differentiated with the help of diffusion-weighted imaging with calculated apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs). METHODS: 29 patients (ages ranging from 22 to 82 years, mean age of 58.6 years) were included. Nine meningiomas, 7 metas...
