    Axial T1 - weighted SE image showing the subcutaneous lesion (large arrow) of decreased signal intensity , well-demarcated from the high signal of the surrounding subcutaneous fat. Note the distant antero-medial...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Merkel cell tumor;

    Axial T1 -weighted SE with Gadolinium showing both the enhancing main tumor (large arrow) as well as the nodule (small arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Merkel cell tumor;

    On the axial T2 FSE with fat saturation the lesion (arrow) appears with intermediate signal intensity

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Merkel cell tumor;

    Coronal T1 -weighted SE with gadolinium showing the vertical extension of the lesion (arrow).
