  • Figure 2
    Pre-contrast CT

    Attenuation values found in the pre-contrast images were about 38 HU.

    Post-contrast CT

    The mass did not enhance after IV contrast.

     
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Post-contras CT

    Post-contrast attenuation values were similar to those found in the pre-contrast images.

     
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Sagital MPR

    The lesion had a rounded appearance in the sagital plane and was clearly located above the geniohyoid and milohyoid muscles.
