Quantitative Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer Imaging of Amide Proton Transfer Differentiates between Cerebellopontine Angle Schwannoma and Meningioma: Preliminary Results.

In determining malignant brain tumors, new research has shown the effectiveness of amide proton transfer –chemical exchange saturation transfer imaging. From November 2020 to April 2022, we retrospectively reviewed nine patients with schwannoma and nine patients with meningioma who underwent APT-CEST MRI. MTRasym measurements could be clearly distinguished between the schwannoma and meningioma groups, according to the Receiver operative curve report, which showed that MTRasym values were distinctly different between the two groups. Our findings showed that MTRasym images on APT-CEST imaging could help distinguish patients with schwannomas from patients with meningiomas.

Cervical intranodal schwannoma - a rare diagnosis.

Intranodal schwannoma is a rare benign tumor that originates from the peripheral nerve sheath, although there are only a few instances of lymphatic involvement. We present the case of a middle-aged female patient with a one-year mass in the lateral-cervical region, in close association with the neck's vascular bundle. The tumor characteristics were confirmed by preoperative cervical computed tomography examination. S100 protein on immunohistochemistry, as well as negative findings for smooth muscle actin and desmin, aided in the diagnosis of intranodal schwannoma of the neck.
