  • Figure 1
    Axial T2W image

    Axial T2W-image shows a cystic lesion displaying CSF intensity in the pineal region.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Saggital T2W image

    Saggital T2W image shows a cystic lesion displaying CSF intensity in pineal region.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Axial FLAIR image

    Axial FLAIR image shows a cystic lesion in pineal region. The lesion shows incomplete CSF signals suppression on FLAIR imaging.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Axial DWI image

    Axial DWI image shows bright signals in cystic lesion in pineal region.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; MR-Diffusion/Perfusion; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Axial ADC image

    Axial ADC image shows dark signals in the lesion confirming diffusion restriction.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; MR-Diffusion/Perfusion; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 6
    Axial post-contrast image

    Axial post-contrast image shows absence of contrast enhancement in the lesion.
