My father has been diagnoised with brain tumor - a well defined approximately 2.7x2.0 cm hyperdense lesion with calcific rim seen in left parafalcine region in the left frontol region with surrounding oedema. Age related cerebral cortical atrophy is seen. The interhemispheric fissure is centered on the midline. The cerebral ventricles are of normal size and symmetrically arranged. There is no sign of increased intracranial pressure. The internal capsule, corpus callosum and thalamas aprears normal. The brain stem and cerebellum, also appears normal. There is no abnormalities in the cerebellopontine angle areas on both sides. Impression is - features suggestive of left parafalcine frontol meningioma - Age related cerebral cortical atrophy.
