  • Figure 1
    Fetal MRI images.
     

    Fetal brain shows bilateral open lip schizencephaly with asymmetry of the lateral ventricles at the schizencephaly defects. T2 hypo rim is visible as sign of post-haemorrhagic tissue disruption.

    Normal brain MRI

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: Experimental; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;

    Close-lip schizencephaly (type I). Notice the narrow cleft lined by dysplastic cortical grey matter.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: Experimental; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;

    Open-lip schizencephaly (type II). Notice the wide cleft from cortical surface to the ependymal margin, lined by dysplastic cortical grey matter.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: Experimental; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;

    Porencephalic cyst. Notice that the cyst opens to the ventricular space, expands into the periventricular white matter and is not lined by cortex but by gliotic tissue.
