ABSTRACT

The use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in diagnosis of brain tumour is inevitable. This study is aimed at determining the efficiency of magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of brain tumour diseases among patients in Port Harcourt metropolis in Rivers State, Nigeria. It is a retrospective study where case files of 68 patients (male=26, female=42) were collected, evaluated and analysed using common MRI findings from January, 2009- December, 2019. From the result, meningioma was the common MRI finding (n=20, 29.41%), followed by pituitary macroadenoma (n=15, 22.06%), and the least MRI finding was cholesteatoma (n=1, 1.47%). The result also shows that mid-aged adults between the age range of 40-59 has the most common brain tumour pathologies (n=24, 35.29%) while children within the age range of 0-9 has the least common brain tumour pathologies (n=2, 2.94%). The various age group were analysed using one-way ANOVA at (P < 0.05) and there was significant difference across group. P value =0.0268 and R2 =0.8510. Therefore, meningioma is the most common type of brain tumour cases in Port Harcourt metropolis in Rivers State, Nigeria and MRI is a useful tool in detection of brain tumour and as such, should be utilized more for patients with brain tumour.

Keywords: Cholesteatoma, Macroadenoma, MRI finding, Meningioma, Brain Tumour and Port Harcourt.
