Abstract

Focusing on neuroepithelial tumors (mainly gliomas) the author describes CT and MR image of brain tumors. Both methods are the diagnostic gold standard in neurooncology. MR is particularly important in diagnosing and differentiation. This method gives opportunity to assess structure, function, biochemical profile and molecular structure (in the nearest future). Furthermore, on the basis of MR modern stereotactic surgery and conventional neurosurgery can be performed in a more sparing manner. The author concentrates on typical features of brain tumors in CT and MR. In the following chapters of this study mesenchymal tumors and tumor's recurrence are presented.
