    A sagittal T1-weighted spin-echo image revealing high signal intensity of the well-delineated mass (indicated by an arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Conventional MRI images;

    A coronal T2-weighted fast spin-echo image revealing high signal intensity of the well-delineated mass (indicated by an arrow). Note that the mass is extraconal and also has a subcutaneous extension laterally.
