  • Question: Could we see necrosis as a result of radiotherapy (after AA surgery) after four years and is that necrosis highlighted with the MRI gadolinium injection?
  • Answer:06/04/2011
    It is unusual for it to appear after four years if it was not there before. Yes, the necrosis area does enhance, but recurrent tumor does also. An MRI-spect may help differentiate the two.
