    Tornwaldt's Cyst
     

    Midline cystic mass (arrow) in the upper nasopharynx presenting with high signal intensity on T1-weighted axial view.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Tornwaldt's Cyst;

    On the sagittal T1 view, the cystic mass (arrow) is seen in the upper nasopharynx, nestled between the prevertebral muscles within the pharyngeal raphe.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Tornwaldt's Cyst;

    The mass (arrow) displays a high signal intensity on T2-weighted axial image, indicating a cystic nature.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Tornwaldt's Cyst;

    After injection of gadolinium, no enhancement is seen in the cystic mass (arrow), but surrounding normal mucosa shows physiological contrast uptake (axial T1-weighted view).
