Abstract

MR imaging without and with gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) is an important imaging tool for defining normal anatomy and characteristics of lesions. GBCAs have been used in contrast-enhanced MR imaging in defining and characterizing lesions of the central nervous system for more than 20 years. The combination of unenhanced and GBCA-enhanced MR imaging is the clinical gold standard for the noninvasive detection and delineation of most intracranial and spinal lesions. MR imaging has a high predictive value that rules out neoplasm and most inflammatory and demyelinating processes of the central nervous system.
