    Extensive osteonecrosis in the leg bones
     

    Mottled opacities in the proximal metadiaphysis of the left tibia.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Extensive osteonecrosis in the leg bones;

    Multiple symmetrical lipomatosis
     

    Coronal T1-weighted image showing accumulation of fatty tissue around the neck and back.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Multiple symmetrical lipomatosis;

    Tranverse T1-weighted image showing accumulation of fatty tissue in the neck without clear delineation and extension into deep neck spaces without compression of neck structures.

    Osteonecrosis of the proximal tibia
     

    Sagittal T1-weighted image showing mixed pattern of low and high signal intensities corresponding to areas of calcification and granulation tissue.
