Gd-DTPA enhancement was found to correlate with hypercellular, hypervascular areas in 12 glioblastomas, when in vivo and post surgical MRI and pathological examinations were performed. True cysts may demonstrate contrast enhancement on MRI; this was evident in cases in which newly formed vessels were shown inside or near the cyst. Necrotic areas and cystic necrosis did not show any contrast enhancement on MRI.

Abstract

Gd-DTPA enhancement was found to correlate with hypercellular, hypervascular areas in 12 glioblastomas, when in vivo and post surgical MRI and pathological examinations were performed. True cysts may demonstrate contrast enhancement on MRI; this was evident in cases in which newly formed vessels were shown inside or near the cyst. Necrotic areas and cystic necrosis did not show any contrast enhancement on MRI.
