  • Figure 1
    Axial MDCT image
     

    Axial MDCT image shows a well-marginated heterogeneous mass of 7cm in diameter. The attenuation is similar to that of muscles.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial MDCT image;

    Axial and coronal T2-weighted images
     

    Axial T2-weighted image shows a heterogeneous mass of 7cm in diameter, well marginated, with predominantly low signal intensity.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial and coronal T2-weighted images;

    Coronal T2-weighted image shows a heterogeneous mass, with predominantly low signal intensity.

  • Figure 3
    Axial T1-weighted image

    Axial T1-weighted image shows a heterogeneous mass (diameter, 7cm), well marginated, with different signal intensities from low to high.

  • Figure 4
    Axial T1-weighted image

    Axial fat-suppression T1-weighted image shows a heterogeneous mass (diameter, 7cm) with predominant low signal intensity, a finding consistent with the presence of fat.
