Differential Diagnosis of Brain Masses
The heart of the differential diagnosis in neuroimaging begins with accurate localization of the lesion. Two major schemes are used: intra-axial vs. extra-axial; and supratentorial vs. infratentorial (posterior fossa). We will use these together to develop a “short list” of appropriate diagnostic possibilities for intracranial mass lesions.
