Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) Consistent with the lack of neuroglial elements, N-acetyl aspartate (NAA) is low or absent in metastases, (24–26). Nodular enhancing portions of metastatic lesions may show an elevated choline/creatine ratio, reflecting high cell density and phospholipid turnover, as do gliomas (24,27,28). Metastatic lesions were initially thought to be distinguishable from high-grade gliomas by the presence of lipid and lactate peaks, lack of creatine, and increased lipid/creatine ratio (29,30).

Identification of a neoplasm as the underlying lesion in a parenchymal hematoma is a common and challenging problem in neuroimaging. The most important finding suggestive of tumor is the presence of one or more areas of nodular enhancement adjacent to the hematoma. Other features in favor of hemorrhagic neoplasms are an incomplete hemosiderin ring, the presence of edema that seems more extensive than expected for the age of the hemorrhage, and delay in the expected evolution of signal characteristics in the hematoma (Fig.
