Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The small size of the brain stem, its location between the petrous pyramids, and the density of neuroanatomic structures in its substance make imaging of the brain stem one of the most challenging aspects of diagnostic neuroradiology. The relative value of CT, MRI, and angiography in the diagnosis of various brain stem lesions is reviewed. The contributions that can be made by more advanced diagnostic and functional imaging techniques are presented.
