    Invasion and lytic changes of the right pterygoid process by the enhancing tumour

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: T1W SE images after Gd IV (no fat suppression);

    Large invasion of the masticator space, the pterygo-palatine fossa, the prestyloid parapharyngeal space on both sides, as the retro-pharyngeal and pre-vertebral spaces

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: T1W SE images after Gd IV (no fat suppression);

    There is an intracranial extension in both the cavernous sinuses, with destruction of the petrous apex on the right.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: T1W SE images after Gd IV (no fat suppression);

    Note the large invasion of the sphenoid ala

    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: T1W SE coronal images after contrast;

    The masticator space is massively invaded on the right
