• Metrizamide (Amipaque) computerized tomography cisternography (CTC) provides a rapid, simple, and accurate radiographic modality of intrathecal enhancement for detecting and morphologically characterizing cerebellopontine (CP) angle masses. The technique is of especial value in masses < 1.5 cm that are not detected on intravenously enhanced computerized tomography. Metrizamide CTC was used in six patients with no CP angle mass and in four patients with acoustic neurilemomas.
