Grob, P. Tassan, O. -M. Caille, M. Raynaud, D. Buthiau, F. Gelbert, V. Dousset, J. Berge Currently there are many indications for a CT or MR examination. A scan should be performed in the presence of a clinical suspicion not just for advanced disease. In this chapter dedicated to malignant cerebral tumors (primary and secondary), the most characteristic CT and MRI appearances of these neoplasms are summarized. The pretreatment evaluation and role of imaging in follow-up of these malignant tumors are discussed.
Different contrast can be simultaneously acquired using several echoes which become increasingly T2-weighted with longer TE. However, excessive prolongation of the TE results in signal loss and is responsible for very noisy images. The acquisition time is directly proportional to the TR, thus a T2-weighted image (WI) requires a longer imaging time. 1.
