CT at the base of the skull can be misleading owing to the superimposition of skull density over tumor density and because of artifact. This is particularly true for sellar region tumors. MRI is superior and has the advantage of allowing multiplanar viewing in relation to local structures such as the optic apparatus. MRA and MRV sequences help to assess vascular involvement. This is particularly helpful in sellar region tumors to determine the position of the carotid artery and tributaries in relation to the tumor. Conventional angiography, particularly if pre-operative embolization is envisaged, gives more detailed information and is still the "gold standard".
