  • Figure 1
    Sagittal T1 weighted image

    Nodular cystic masses (white arrow) which appear slightly hyperintense to CSF in the atria of lateral ventricle.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Cysts;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    T2 weighted axial image

    Symmetric hyperintense nodular cystic masses (white arrows) in the atria of both lateral ventricles.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Cysts;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    FLAIR axial image

    Incompletely suppressed symmetric nodular cystic masses (white arrows) in the atria of both lateral ventricles.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Cysts;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Axial diffusion-weighted and corresponding ADC map

    Masses (white arrows) are hyperintense on diffusion and ADC, likely representing pseudorestriction/T2 shine-through effect.
