  • Figure 1
    Axial T1

    Axial T1 demonstrates symmetrical low signal in the parieto-occipital region

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Metabolic disorders;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Axial T2

    Axial T2 demonstrates increased symmetrical signal within the parieto-occipital region affecting the splenium, peritrigonal white matter, and forceps major, with sparing of the subcortical U-fibres.
