Resumen

SUERO ALMONTE, Samael et al. Diagnosis of intracranial masses using imaging techniques. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.1, pp.44-53. ISSN 1561-3194.

A descriptive, longitudinal and cross-sectional study including the patients operated on intracranial central nervous system neoplasm was carried out at "Abel Santamaria Cuadrado" University Hospital, Pinar del Rio during January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010. All patients discharged from the hospital with Computerized Axial Tomography or Magnetic Resonance Imaging and having post-operative histological diagnosis of primary intracranial neoplasm of the central nervous system (CNS) were included. Primary neoplasm was the most frequent in female sex and in the age-bracket of 70 years old or older. The most repeated localizations of primary neoplasm in the CNS were in intra-axial and supratentorial masses, glioma was the most prevailing histological type. Contrast examinations could be performed in all masses, presenting not much hemorrhage, with intermediate-mass-effect calcifications and hypo-intensive in T1 and hyper-intensive in T2.
