MRI of a Patient with Multiple Sclerosis Lesions in the Cervical and Thoracic Spine

MRI of a Patient with Multiple Sclerosis Lesions in the Cervical and Thoracic Spine

MRI of a Patient with Multiple Sclerosis Lesions in the Cervical and Thoracic Spine (blue circle) Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was first used to visualize multiple sclerosis (MS) in the upper cervical spine in the late 1980s. Spinal MS is often associated with concomitant brain lesions; however, as many as 20% of patients with spinal …

Multiparametric MR Imaging of the brain on a patient with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM)

Multiparametric MR Imaging of the brain on a patient with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM)

Comprehensive, multiparametric MR Imaging of the brain on a patient with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) The examination was based on anatomical (T1-w, T2-w, FLAIR), functional (DWI, DCE & DSC Perfusion) and metabolic (MR Spectroscopy) sequences for a detailed assessment of the tumour. Brain proton MR spectroscopy (MRS) is a mature methodology that is used clinically in …

MRI shows a patient with mature cystic ovarian teratoma (or ovarian dermoid cyst)

Figure shows a patient with mature cystic ovarian teratoma (or ovarian dermoid cyst). Mature cystic teratoma is the most common ovarian neoplasm and affects mostly young patients. It is a benign germ cell tumour consisting of at least two of the three embryogenic germ cell layers, and usually contains ectodermal (skin, brain), mesodermal (fat, bone) …

Gadobutrol-enhanced MRI of the liver on a patient with hepatic hemangioma

Gadobutrol-enhanced MRI of the liver on a patient with hepatic hemangioma

Gadobutrol-enhanced MRI of the liver on a patient with hepatic hemangioma Hemangiomas are common focal liver lesions, usually detected in the work up of asymptomatic patients. MRI is the imaging method of choice to diagnose hemangiomas. On T1-w images, hemangiomas display low signal intensity and on T2-w, they are strikingly homogeneous, clearly demarcated from the …

MRI of a patient with pituitary macroadenoma

MRI of a patient with pituitary macroadenoma

Pituitary macroadenomas are the most common suprasellar mass in adults, and responsible for the majority of transsphenoidal hypophysectomies. They are defined as pituitary adenomas greater than 10 mm in size and are approximately twice as common as pituitary microadenomas. MRI is the preferred imaging modality, not only able to delineate the mass exquisitely but also …
