Results of Computerized Axial Tomography with and without intravenous contrast (60% Conray) in 24 patients with multiple brain tumors were analyzed. Of the 24 patients, 19 had metastatic brain tumors, 4 multiple gliomas and 1 patient had multiple meningiomas. Data obtained by C.T. scan were compared to results obtained by angiography and nuclear scanning. In tne diagnosis of multiple metastatic brain tumors, C.T. scans were superior to the other two procedures. However, C.T. scanning detected 4 lesions in the case of multiple meningiomas, while angiography disclosed 11 tumors in the same patient.
