    Figure 1-Axial T2W image shows a cystic lesion displaying CSF intensity in pineal region

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Saggital T2W image

    Figure 2-Saggital T2W image shows a cystic lesion displaying CSF intensity in pineal region.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Axial FLAIR image

    Figure 3 -Axial FLAIR image shows a cystic lesion in pineal region.The lesion shows incomplete CSF signals suppression on FLAIR imaging

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Axial DWI image

    Figure 4 -Axial DWI image shows bright signals in cystic lesion in pineal region.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; MR-Diffusion/Perfusion; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Axial ADC image

    Figure 5 -Axial ADC image shows dark signals in the lesion confirming diffusion restriction.
