Computerised Axial Tomography in Supratentorial Gliomas and Metastases
It is now well established that Computerised Axial Tomography (C.A.T.) is a highly sensitive system and its non-invasive characteristics have made it a better method of investigation in tumour suspects than any other conventional technique. The purpose of this study was to analyse the reliability of C.A.T. in the diagnosis of intrinsic cerebral tumours in detecting the presence of a lesion within the cerebrum, in defining its localisation and in predicting the specific nature of the tumour.
