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 …

Uses of surface/external phased array coils vs endorectal coil for the MR Imaging of the prostate gland

Uses of surface/external phased array coils vs endorectal coil for the MR Imaging of the prostate gland

Surface/external phased array coils (torso or cardiac) and/or endorectal coil (ERC) can be used for the multiparametric MR Imaging of the prostate gland. The ERC is a wire coil that is inserted through a small plastic tube into the rectum to obtain high quality images of the prostate gland and seminal vesicles. The coil consists …

High-resolution MR Imaging of the orbits and facial skull on a patient with squamous cell carcinoma

High-resolution MR Imaging of the orbits and facial skull on a patient with squamous cell carcinoma

High-resolution MR Imaging of the orbits and facial skull on a moderately cooperative patient with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the skin. SCC, the second most common form of skin cancer, is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells arising from the squamous cells in the epidermis, the skin’s outermost layer. SCCs may occur on all …
