Computed tomography of acoustic neuroma

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Review of computed tomographic (CT) scans of 49 consecutive patients with surgically excised acoustic neuromas revealed positive scans in 80% following contrast enhancement, with 20% false negative scans. All tumors over 2 cm in diameter were shown by optimal scans with contrast enhancement. The positive scans were evaluated to determine the accuracy of the size of the lesions as predicted by the scan. A radiological approach to the evaluation of suspected acoustic neuromas is suggested.
