The potentials of magnetic resonance tomography in the diagnosis of the “empty” sella turcica

MRT is a highly informative, noninvasive diagnostic method which it is advisable to use to assess the state of the hypophysis in patients with endocrinopathies.
The absence of ionizing radiation, the possibility of carrying out investigations in three or more planes without preliminary preparation of the patient, and the graphic character of the image make it possible to consider MRT with use of MR myelography as a method of choice for the diagnosis of EST.
