  • Figure 1
    Axial T2-weighted MRI

    Axial T2-weighted MRI showing hyperintense cortical lesion in the left temporal lobe, surrounded by a hyposignal.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Arteriovenous malformations;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Coronal T2 flair weighted MRI

    Coronal T2 flair weighted MRI shows a reticulated hyperintensity (white arrow) surrounded by a rim of hypointensity in the left temporal lobe.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Arteriovenous malformations;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Axial T2* weighted MRI

    in T2*weighted MRI, the lesion appears larger because of "blooming effect" caused by local magnetic field inhomogeneity induced by paramagnetic blood products.
