Imaging brain tumors – 7 – Bonus cases
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 gives some additional cases in which you can apply the principles learned in the other videos to form a differential. These are challenging cases, and your top differential will not always be correct, but it is more about going through the thought process.
If you have not seen the other brain tumor videos, it may be useful to check them out before watching this video. They address imaging tumor types including astrocytomas,oligodendrogliomas, other low grade glial tumors,and non-glial tumors. Other videos address general topics in brain tumor imagingand how to form a differential diagnosis for a brain tumor.
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.
