Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Evaluation of Supratentorial Extra-Axial Brain Tumors

Dr. G. Srujana, Dr. Manikanta Vijay.S, Dr. Sravan Krishna Reddy.A

Magnetic Resonance Imaging has higher sensitivity and specificity for detecting, localization and characterization of intracranial brain tumours. Of all the brain tumours, 80 % are supratentorial, of which 40 % are extra-axial. The objective of our study is to assess diagnostic ability of MRI in characterizing various supratentorial extra-axial tumours using T1, T2 weighted images, Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), Susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) and contrast-enhanced image. It is a prospective study conducted in the Department of Radio-diagnosis, Narayana Medical College and Hospital, Nellore, Andhra Pradesh from June 2018 - February 2019 using 3Tesla whole-body MR system. In the present study, the majority of the patients belonged to the age group of 40-50 years, 26 patients were males, and 24 were females. In males majority had a meningioma, in females majority had pituitary adenoma. Meningiomas are the most common brain tumours (44 %), followed by pituitary adenomas (20 %). Headache and vomiting are the most common symptoms.
