Paper Abstract

In this paper we will give a short review of the fundamental and practicle aspects of the use of contrast materials in CT with aim of augmenting detection and identification of various lesions of the brain. We will outline briefly some of the fundamental physical, chemical and pharmacological characteristics of current water soluble contrast materials. We will review some of the research that has been directed towards classification of the brain tumors with conventional contrast agents by a relative enhancement, image textural changes and slow dynamic effects (5-60 minutes).
