To review the recommended imaging protocol and the utility of various Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) sequences in identification and characterization of Intraventricular neoplasms. To give differential diagnosis based upon the location and appearance of the lesion within the ventricle. To be able to correlate the imaging (MRI) with the pathologic findings for the optimal management of the lesion.
Intraventricular Lesions represent a subgroup of intracranial lesions with unique and characteristic image patterns that helps in the differential diagnosis1. The ventricles are surrounded by ependymal and sub ependymal plate formed by the glial cells that can give rise to ependymoma and sub ependymoma.
this lining and the septum pellucidum which is located between the corpus callosum and fornix,
separating the lateral ventricles,
can give rise to central neurocytoma 2.
Findings and procedure details
Retrospective search for cases of Intraventricular neoplasms was done and MRI features were reviewed. In this Pictorial review we will focus on MRI protocol for intraventricular neoplasms and will illustrate case based findings with special emphasis on correlation with histological diagnosis. MRI protocol Axial,
Sagittal and coronal T1-Post Contrast,
axial FLAIR and T1-W1 of the brain are acquired.
DWI and ADC maps may be obtained in selected cases.
coronal and sagittal T1- Post...
Intraventricular mass lesions arise from different types of tissues found in the central nervous system.
there exists a variety of presentation depending upon the type and location of the cell involved in the lesion.
In the present study,
the authors aimed at reviewing the imaging of important intraventricular lesions. MRI findings in light of patients demographic details and clinical data can play a vital role to help radiologists understand the pathological process,
