T1W postcontrast image demonstrates a large, heterogeneously enhancing left frontal lobe mass that effaces the frontal horns of the lateral ventricles and causes significant leftward midline shift. Note that the enhancement is thick and irregular, with a central nonenhancing region that reflects necrotic tumor. Imaging Findings Computed Tomography • • Irregular mass lesion, often hyperdense on nonenhanced scan Postcontrast: heterogeneous enhancement, areas of necrosis Magnetic Resonance Intra-axial mass that is typically heterogeneous due to cysts, hemorrhage, and/or necrosis (Fig.

Other areas of susceptibility also likely represent internal calcifications. T2 hyperintense vasogenic edema involves the left frontal lobe white matter as well as the left internal and external capsules. There is associated mass effect on frontal horns of the lateral ventricles. (D) Axial DWI demonstrates the mass is mildly restricted (ADC not shown) most consistent with hypercellularity. indd 44 T1W image: usually hypointense, although T1 shortening may be related to hemorrhage or melanin. T2W image: typically hyperintense; iso- or hypointensity on T2W image may be related to hemorrhage, mucin secretion (adenocarcinomas), or a high nuclear-to-cytoplasmic ratio T2 hyperintense parenchymal vasogenic edema suggests focal invasion Postgadolinium: enhancement may be solid, peripheral, or mixed Restricted internal diffusion if hypercellular 11/9/12 1:10 AM I NEOPLASMS–SUPRATENTORIAL A 45 B C Fig.
