Dynamic Susceptibility Contrast and Dynamic Contrast Enhanced MR Imaging Characteristics Distinguish Microcystic Meningiomas from Traditional Grade I Meningiomas and High Grade Gliomas


Abstract

Microcystic meningioma is a variant of meningioma with a multicystic appearance that can mimic intrinsic primary brain tumors, hemangioblastomas, and other non-meningiomatous tumor types. Dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC) and Dynamic Contrast Enhanced (DCE) imaging have been developed as a means to differentiate tumors types based on hemodynamic and permeability characteristics with the potential to aid in preoperative identification of tumor type.
