  • Figure 1
    Non-enhanced cerebral CT-Scan
     

    Multiple spontaneously high density lesions in the left internal temporal region.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Blood; Calcifications / Calculi;

    Peripheral spontaneously high density lesion in the left temporal lobe.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Biological effects;

    Similar but bigger lesion next to the left MCA.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Blood;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Brain MRI Scans
     

    SE T2-w imaging showing low signal zones in the left temporal lobe.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Blood;

    SE T2-w imaging showing a low signal lesion next to the left MCA.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Blood;

    GE T2-w (T2*) imaging showing very low signal lesions in the left temporal lobe.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Blood;

    GE T2-w (T2*) imaging showing multiple very low signal and almost rounded lesions with different sizes, located next to the Circle of Willis branches.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Blood;

    Same as Fig.2d.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Blood;

    Enhanced SE T1-w imaging showing a very mild enhancement of a lesion next to the left MCA. No enhancement for the many other lesions.
