    Sacro-iliac joint
     

    Minor degree of sclerosis on the iliac aspect of the right sacro-iliac joint.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Sacro-iliac joint;

    Sclerosis around the sacro-iliac joint is better appreciated at this stage. The joint space is relatively well preserved.

    This sagittal post-contrast T1-weighted image shows the enhancing mass at Meckel's cave (arrow). The swelling of the nerve can be traced proximally along the nerve through the pre-pontine cistern to the root entry...

This sagittal post-contrast T1-weighted image shows the enhancing mass at Meckel's cave (arrow). The swelling of the nerve can be traced proximally along the nerve through the pre-pontine cistern to the root entry zone. It can be traced distally extending into the inferior cavernous sinus (along the maxillary division), and inferiorly through the foramen ovale into the masticator space (mandibular division) to the medial aspect of the mandibular ramus (inferior alveolar nerve).
