Contrast-enhanced (CE) Constructive Interference in Steady State (CISS) and Volumetric Interpolated Breath-hold Examination (VIBE) are MRI sequences used to improve the detection of pituitary adenomas and adjacent cranial nerves. The purpose of this study was to assess image quality and identify imaging predictors of postoperative hormonal remission of functioning pituitary adenomas using CE-T1 weighted image (WI), T2WI, CE-CISS, and CE-VIBE MRI sequences.
