    Band heterotopia
     

    T1-weighted image reveals a complete band of heterotopic gray matter, also referred to as double cortex or laminar heterotopia. Note diffuse hypoplasia of the overlying cortex.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Band heterotopia;

    T2-weighted coronal image reveals similar changes, less detailed than the T1-weighted image. The bulbous appearance of the lateral ventricles is due to diminished white matter content.
