Majority of meningiomas are benign and are classified in I grade according to the WHO grade. The aim of the study is to present the development of meningiomas respectively of meningiomas of the basis crani anterior during 2007-2009 year period, in UCCK and General Hospital âAlokaâ, in Prishtina, and the effectiveness of imaging (CT and MRI) in their diagnostics. Methods, A prospective study, where patients with meningiomas were evaluated continually according to imaging protocols and cases were verified by microscopy. All patients underwent CT scan and MRI imaging with CTââSiemens-Emotion 6â in UCCK, and CT -âPhilips-Auraâ in general hospital âAlokaâ and MRI 1.5T âSiemens Magnetom Symphonyâ. Results were analyzed with a statistical program InStat 3. From statistical parameters are used, percentage, mean and standard deviation. For data testing we have used the unparametric tests; proportional tâtest (Zvalue) and X2âtest with significant level p< 0.05 and p
