- Question: Could we see necrosis as a result of radiotherapy (after AA surgery) after four years and is that necrosis highlighted with the MRI gadolinium injection?
It is unusual for it to appear after four years if it was not there before. Yes, the necrosis area does enhance, but recurrent tumor does also. An MRI-spect may help differentiate the two.
