A case of brain metastases from breast cancer

A 39-year-old woman who admitted to the hospital because of a headache and vomiting that develops slowly. she did a lumpectomy for 3 years ago. At Thu Duc Hospital we performed a ctscan first and then take Mri later. As we known, the best type of imaging to diagnose most types of brain tumours is MRI. However, on unenhenced ct scan we discovered 2 locations with the tumours inside actually. On Mri with Gado enhancement revealed the tumours clearly. Imaging characteristics of brain metastases could be any of the following signs:
– multiple tumours (Cerebellum more often)
– rim enhancement
– low intensity on DWI (In most tumours there is no restricted diffusion even in necrotic or cystic components. This results in a normal, low signal on DWI.)
