These tests will include a physical examination, and brain scans such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computerized tomography (CT), which will identify the presence of a tumour. A biopsy may be necessary. This is a type of surgery that allows doctors to remove samples of tumour tissue to see the exact type of tumour. </p> <figure class="swf-asset-c-80"> <span class="asset-image-title">Hypothalamic Glioma (Sagittal) MRI</span> <div class="asset-animation"> src="https://akhpub.aboutkidshealth.ca/Style%20Library/akh/swfanimations/swf.html?swffile=MRI_optic_hypothalamic_glioma_sagittal_MED_ANI_EN.swf" </div> </figure> <figure class="swf-asset-c-80"> <span class="asset-image-title">Hypothalamic Glioma (Coronal) MRI</span> <div class="asset-animation"> src="https://akhpub.aboutkidshealth.ca/Style%20Library/akh/swfanimations/swf.html?swffile=MRI_optic_hypothalamic_glioma_coronal_MED_ANI_EN.swf" </div> </figure> <p>The diagnosis of any brain tumour can be a long and difficult process. If the symptoms are dramatic, the diagnosis may happen quickly.
