Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Non-invasive assessment of vascular permeability is of main importance in the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of intracranial tumors. Perfusion-CT is one of the imaging options available, which affords quantitative assessment of cerebral blood volume and blood-brain barrier permeability. Herein we report two cases of extra-axial tumors studied with perfusion-CT. Comparison with perfusion-MRI was available in one case. High permeability values, as measured by perfusion-CT, reflected the absence of blood-brain barrier in these extra-axial tumors.
