Magnetic resonance evaluation of central nervous system neoplasms has improved tremendously since the introduction of gadolinium-based contrast agents. The optimal application of these agents in clinical imaging, however, has not been well established. The article discusses the recent application of these agents to a number of intracranial neoplasms, including metastases, gliomas, pituitary adenomas, and acoustic neurinomas cerbellopontine angle tumors. © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
