  • Figure 1
    Axial and coronal postcontrast CT images
     

    Images show a rounded extraconal mass centred on the right lacrimal gland at the superolateral aspect of the right orbit, with strong peripheral and mild central heterogeneous enhancement.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;

    Images show a rounded extraconal mass centered on the right lacrimal gland along the superolateral aspect of the right orbit, with strong peripheral and mild central heterogeneous enhancement.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    MRI coronal T1, T2 and T1 post-contrast images
     

    T1W coronal MRI shows an intermediate intensity right lacrimal fossa mass.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;

    T2W coronal MRI shows a hyperintense right lacrimal fossa mass.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;

    Post-contrast T1W coronal MRI shows a right lacrimal fossa mass with heterogeneous post-gadolinium enhancement.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI)
     

    B1000 diffusion weighted image (DWI) showing partially hyperintense right lacrimal fossa lesion.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR-Diffusion/Perfusion; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;

    Apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) map showing areas of reduced signal within the right lacrimal fossa lesion, consistent with restricted diffusion.
