Patient
male, 18 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    MRI of the brain
     

    Fig 1a : Axial T2-weighted image shows a few high signals foci in white matter

     

    Fig 1b: Axial T2*- weighted image obtained in the identical location clearly shows multiple traumatic microbleeds as low signal foci not depicted on the T2-weighted MR images

     
     
     
  • Figure 2
    MRI of the brain
     

    Fig 2a: Axial T2-weighted image with no clearly visible abnormality.

     

    Fig 2b:Axial fluid-attenuated inversion-recovery image at the same level shows high signal areas at white matter and gray matter-white matter border.

     

    Fig 2c: Axial T2*- weighted image shows traumatic low signal microbleeds which are not clearly visible on the T2-weighted and FLAIR images. Small intraventricular hemorrhage is also evident in the occipital horn.
