Images and findings


The study reveals evidence of multiple 
cystic foci diffusely involving both cerebral hemispheres. The cystic foci are tiny-small variable sized discrete and confluent relatively well defined smoothly marginated. Foci are primarily cortico-sulcal in location with few patchy foci in right ganglio-thalamic, midbrain, parahippocampal gyrus and cerebellar hemispheric regions with most of the lesions showing tiny eccentriccaly placed nodules.
SWIp could help differentiate the active lesion from the calcified lesion.


Findings are suggestive of multifocal disseminated inflammatory granulomatous lesions - Neurocysticercal cysts in varying stages of evolution.

Impact of using Multiva MR imaging

In this case, non-contrast MR imaging with Multiva demonstrates high SNR and high spatial resolution to help diagnose neurocysticercal cysts in varying stages of evolution.

Multiva assisted in a right-first-time diagnosis using non-contrast MR imaging.
