Dynamic cerebral studies were carried out in 21 patients with cerebral abnormalities. Thirteen had tumours and eight showed vascular abnormalities. In most cases the diagnosis was confirmed by histology, but occasionally by angiography or by computed tomography and the clinical course. Dynamic cerebral studies were performed, involving the production of concentration-time curves following bolus injection of ordinary contrast medium. The type of contrast enhancement gave a better indication of the nature of the lesion. The method can be used together with the more common type of investigations, such as plain scans and contrast scans. The small number of patients requires further studies with larger numbers; for this a multi-centric study would be suitable.
