According to the studies of ZUELCH the endotheliomatous meningioma shows a regular vascular network with giant capillaries and sinusoidal vessels. The angiomatous meningioma is characterized by especially enriched vessels. Only the rarer fibromatous meningioma contains a rather meager vessel network. Hence, the angiography almost always produces a characteristic delineation of the tumor vessel (4, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12). Accordingly, the diagnosis of the meningioma is especially suitable for the application of neuroradiological and nuclearmedical methods, with a view to providing maximal preoperative information for the neurosurgeon about the localization, type and size of the operable tumor.
