  • cranial
  • Of all cranial meningiomas, about 20% of them are in the sphenoid wing. (wikipedia.org)
  • In one series, less than one-third of clinoidal meningiomas could be completely resected without unacceptable risk of damaging of blood vessels (especially the carotid artery) or cranial nerves, risks that are lower with radiosurgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • incidence
  • Atomic bomb survivors from Hiroshima had a higher than typical frequency of developing meningiomas, with the incidence increasing the closer that they were to the site of the explosion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Meningiomas have an incidence of ~4.18/100,000 persons each year. (wikipedia.org)
  • Screening
  • Meningioma screening tests, such as CT scans and MRIs, may be recommended for people who have an elevated risk of developing this type of brain cancer. (moffitt.org)
  • Currently, there are no set recommendations for how often an at-risk individual should have a meningioma screening test or which type of imaging scan should be used. (moffitt.org)
  • This includes low-dose CT scans and comprehensive physical exams, both of which play a valuable role in meningioma screening. (moffitt.org)
  • brain
  • Meningiomas are a common primary brain tumour in adults. (cancer.ca)
  • Benign meningiomas are the most common non-cancerous (benign) brain tumour and are found most often in people between the ages of 50 and 80. (cancer.ca)
  • At Moffitt, our experienced surgeons specialize in minimally invasive and robotic procedures for brain cancer treatment and perform a high volume of these complex meningioma surgeries each year. (moffitt.org)
  • Meningiomas can, if they get too large, start to push in on the brain. (medhelp.org)
  • Persons who have undergone radiation, especially to the scalp, are more at risk for developing meningiomas, as are those who have had a brain injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • Patients
  • Our rehabilitation programs are designed to address balance issues, speech problems and other potential complications of meningioma, as well help patients improve their overall quality of life. (moffitt.org)
  • Patients who turn to Moffitt for meningioma treatment can access all of these treatment services in a single, convenient location. (moffitt.org)
  • There is a website that is very helpful to patients with meningiomas called meningiomamamas. (medhelp.org)
  • often
  • Either a head CT or MRI with contrast such as gadolinium is useful, as meningiomas often show homogenous enhancement. (wikipedia.org)
  • A computerized tomography (CT) scan is often done to determine the presence and location of the meningioma. (wisegeek.com)
  • Intraosseous meningiomas often display clinical and radiologic features that can be confused for fibrous dysplasia. (omicsonline.org)
  • cells
  • Histologically, meningioma cells are relatively uniform, with a tendency to encircle one another, forming whorls and psammoma bodies (laminated calcific concretions). (wikipedia.org)
  • known
  • Cutaneous meningioma (also known as "Heterotopic meningeal tissue," and "Rudimentary meningocele") is a developmental defect, and results from the presence of meningocytes outside the calvarium. (wikipedia.org)
