Imaging brain tumors – 6 – Common imaging scenarios
Brain tumors are one of the most common diagnoses addressed in neuroradiology. This covers a wide spectrum of disease, from primary brain tumors like gliomas and glioblastomas to secondary disease like metastases. This lecture covers the spectrum of the most common brain tumors, with an emphasis on primary brain tumors.
This video discusses different scenarios you may encounter when imaging, such as a solitary enhancing lesion, multiple enhancing lesions, and non-enhancing peripheral lesions. Each of these has a differential diagnosis, and choosing appropriately can help guide therapy.
Additional videos in the playlist will address the imaging findings of brain tumors, such as astrocytomas,oligodendrogliomas, other low grade glial tumors,and non-glial tumors. Other videos address general topics in brain tumor imaging, and some challenge cases to apply your skills.
The level of this lecture is appropriate for radiology residents, radiology fellows, and trainees in other specialties who have an interest in neuroradiology or may see patients with brain tumors.
