Extraaxiale Hirntumoren

Extra-axial brain tumors

Zusammenfassung

Die Neuroradiologie spielt eine wichtige Rolle bei der Diagnose von Patienten mit Hirntumoren. Die Computertomographie (CT) und insbesondere die Magnetresonanztomographie (MRT) erlauben die genaue anatomische Darstellung von intrazerebralen Raumforderungen. Die Durchführung von nativen und kontrastmittelgestützten Sequenzen erlaubt in einem großen Teil der Fälle die Charakterisierung der verschiedenen Läsionen. In diesem Review werden die bildgebenden Aspekte mittels CT und MRT der häufigsten primären extraaxialen Hirntumoren diskutiert.

Abstract

Neuroradiology plays a key role in the diagnosis of patients with brain tumors. Computed tomography (CT) and especially magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allow accurate anatomic depiction of intracerebral lesions. The implementation of native and contrast studies allows the characterization of the various lesions. This review discusses the imaging aspects with CT and MRI of the most common primary extra-axial brain tumors.
