The authors were able to demonstrate a very small glioma (1.0 x 0.8 cm in size) of the temporal lobe using MRI. They discuss the relative merits of CT and MRI in the diagnosis of gliomas in terms of their size. CT fails to detect tumours less than 2.0 x 1.5 cm in size which are not calcified. So far, MRI has revealed a tumour as small as 1.0 x 0.8 cm. Therefore, MRI is superior to CT for detecting small gliomas.
