Alternatively, the neoplasm may involve the subarachnoid space hematogenously or from spread along nerves. MRI is more sensitive than computed tomography (CT) because beam hardening limits the detection of dural enhancement, particularly near the calvarium (although CT sensitivity is improved for nodular enhancement and enhancement in spaces not adjacent to the calvarium), but MRI is no more specific, and coronal or axial images are better than sagittal images. • Intracranial hypotension as a cause of pachymeningeal enhancement Intracranial hypotension causes smooth pachymeningeal enhancement and may have a characteristic wavelike pattern of enhancement along the frontal and temporal base, which has been suggested to be due to the contour of the inner margin of the skull in these regions.

In cases of invasion, this line will be absent either focally or more diffusely, and the underlying dural enhancement is more likely to be discontinuous. However, it should be pointed out that in a small percentage Meningeal Enhancement of cases, nonenhancing dura may still be invaded. ) • Lymphoma/leukemia • Lymphomatoid granulomatosis (uncommon) Mimics of Meningeal Enhancement • Slow vascular flow (hydrocephalus, distal to an occlusion, in dilated segments) Additional Readings 1.

The posterior lobe is hyperintense on T1-weighted magnetic resonance [MR] images (T1WI) due to vasopressin and should always be seen in normal children and infants, although the incidence of this finding decreases with age.
