RADIOLOGICAL EVALUATION OF SPECTRUM OF NEUROONCOLOGICAL PATHOLOGIES: OUR EXPERIENCE IN A TERTIARY CARE HOSPITAL OF EASTERN INDIA

Dr. Nupur Basu, Dr. Prithvijit Chakraborty

Abstract :

prognosis mostly depends on early and timely correct diagnosis. Radiological imaging is probably the only diagnostic method with good sensitivity and specificity for critical detection and diagnosis. In this study we have studied the spectrum of imaging findings of malignant ain and spinal cord tumors presented in our institute and retrospectively evaluated the imaging features that may help in early diagnosis and treatment of those conditions and improve the quality of life.Methods:- We analysed the imaging features of 56 patients with neoplastic pathologies of ain and spinal cord between September 2018 and Feuary 2019 after they met the inclusion criteria. Imaging findings of each patients were studied , analysed and classified based on the spectrum of neoplastic ain and spinal cord pathologies.Results:- Average age of male adult patients was 67 years and that of female adult patients was 55 years. Average age of male pediatric patients was 6 years and that of female pediatric patients was 7.1 years. Most common ain tumor in adults were metastasis. Most common primary for ain metastasis was from lung carcinoma. Among the primary ain tumors among adult patients, most were anaplastic astrocytoma (Grade III). Among the primary ain tumors in pediatric patients, most (33.3%) were medulloblastoma.Conclusion:- Imaging evaluation with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) plays an important role in diagnosis and timely management of ain and spinal cord tumors
