Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging plays a critical role in the diagnosis, management, and follow-up of adult supratentorial neoplasms. However, there is considerable overlap in the imaging findings of these lesions. New imaging methods, such as functional MR imaging, diffusion imaging, and spectroscopy may further improve diagnostic specificity and surgical management. Knowledge of the pathogenesis of thes tumors, imaging characteristics, and available novel imaging tools will aid the radiologist in making meaningful contributions in the evaluation and treatment of these lesions.
