MRI BRAIN WITH AND WITHOUT CONTRAST, Apr 11, 2013 12:03:00 PM
INDICATION: disease staging 191.1 Bifrontal or frontal glioblastoma multiforme
TECHNIQUE: Multiplanar, multi-sequence MR imaging of the entire brain was performed before and after intravenous administration of gadolinium-based contrast.
-Calvarium/skull base: Previous left frontal craniotomy for resection of the cord at Glioblastoma Multiforme
-Orbits: Grossly unremarkable.
-Paranasal sinuses: Retention cyst formation in the left maxillary antrum.
-Brain: Postresection changes are seen in the left superior frontal gyrus. After administration of gadolinium there is a small amount of stellate enhancement within the resection cavity likely representing postsurgical change unchanged from before. There is a stable degree of surrounding FLAIR white matter hyperintensity consistent with post treatment changes. A similar stable degree of the minor white matter hyperintensity is seen in the right frontal white matter unchanged from the previous examination.. . No mass effect, hemorrhage, or hydrocephalus. No abnormal enhancement to suggest neoplasm, abscess, or mass lesion. Grossly normal flow-related signal in the major intracranial arteries and dural sinuses.
-Additional Comments: None
Stable appearance of postresection of the left superior frontal gyrus. No evidence of tumor recurrence. No change in pattern of residual postsurgical enhancement.
