In brief: Imaging studies

The only way to truly diagnose a meningioma is by imaging studies, of which an MRI with contrast is the most reliable.
The most important thing to realize, however, is that tissue diagnosis (by way of a biopsy or resection) is the only 100% reliable way to diagnose tumor types and also helps to determine their aggressiveness (grade).
