    MRI Axial T1,T2, FLAIR, T1-postc.
     

    MRI demostrates a polypoid cortical herniation from the lateral inferior right temporal occipital cortex into the superior aspect of the right transverse sinus in keeping with brain herniation into the tranverse sinus.

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

    MRI demonstrates that the cortical herniation is sorrounded by CSF.

    MR Venogram shows a bifid right transverse sinus enclosing the "sac" of the brain herniation. The sigmoid sinus and the internal yugulary vein are normal in calibre.
