Patient
female, 67 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Axial HASTE T2-weighted image

    The hyperintensity of the signal of the mass suggests a cystic lesion.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial HASTE T2-weighted image;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Axial T1-weighted image with fat-suppression

    After fat suppression, the hyperintensity of the signal still remains, thus indicating the presence of fluid.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial T1-weighted image with fat-suppression;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    T1-weighted image with fat suppression acquired on a sagittal plane

    Within the mass there is solid material, referred to as clots.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: T1-weighted image with fat suppression acquired on a sagittal plane;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    FLASH T1-weighted image acquired on an axial plane

    The mass appears hyperintense, thus indicating the presence of mucinous material.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: FLASH T1-weighted image acquired on an axial plane;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    3D T1-weighted image after administration of contrast agent

    The mass shows peripheral enhancement.
