Abstract

At our Bochum conference in 1974, isotope diagnosis achieved the best results, with 23 diagnoses of location out of a total of 24 cases (95%) and 16 correct diagnoses of the kind of tumor out of the 24 cases. The mortality rate at that time was 36%. In Hannover in 1984 we demonstrated that even fairly small tumors in the middle cranial fossa could be diagnosed with the help of CT. Up till now, six MR tomograms have made it possible to locate meningiomas in relation to the tentorium and, with gadolinium, to arrive at a reliable diagnosis.
