Abstract

Findings at magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) where reviewed in 53 surgically confirmed cases with glioma. Astrocytomas showed a constant MR signal pattern in 87 per cent and glioblastomas in 80 per cent. This pattern was found useful when it was correlated with CT. MRI was also found to be of value in planning stereotactic biopsy and in confirming the trajectory.
