  • Figure 1
    An axial T1WI of the brain

    An axial T1W1 of the brain showing an isointense lesion lateral to the left cavernous sinus and orbital apex (arrows). The left sphenoidal sinus is occupied.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial T1WI of the brain;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    An axial T2WI of the brain

    The lesion is being shown less conspicuously in the T2-weighted images. There is a hyperintense material being seen in the left sphenoidal sinus.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial T2WI of the brain;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    An axial post-gadolinium T1WI of the brain

    An axial post-gadolinium T1WI of the brain, showing the lesion having an intense enhancement with the administration of gadolinium (arrows). The mucosae of the left sphenoidal sinus is also seen to be enhanced.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial post-gadolinium T1WI of the brain;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    A coronal post-gadolinium T1WI of the brain

    The coronal images depicting the lesion better (arrows), lateral to the left cavernous sinus.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Coronal post-gadolinium T1WI of the brain;
