  • Figure 1
    CT axial: Head (Unenhanced)

    Hyperdense basilar artery

     
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Axial MRI (T2): Pontine Infarct

    High signal in almost the entirity of the pons

     
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Axial MRI (DWI): Pontine infarct

    B1000 image. The corresponding ADC demonstrated low signal; features consistent with diffusion restriction and acute cerebral infarcton.

     
     
     
  • Figure 4
    MR angiography: Coronal of cerebral circulation

    Angiography of the neck vessels showing incomplete demonstration of the basilar artery (terminal portion not well visualised) and absence of the right vertebral artery
