MR spectroscopy

MR Imaging finding reveals a small heterogeneously enhancing ill-defined and infiltrating space occupying lesion involving the right ganglio-thalamo-capsular and adjacent periventricular region and focally extending to right cerebral peduncle and midbrain regions. Spectra revealed raised choline levels in the lesion. The lesion had a patchy areas of restricted diffusion and heterogeneous enhancement pattern in the contrast study.


MR imaging findings suggest an enhancing brain lesion.

Impact of using Multiva 1.5T

The high coil element density provides with excellent SNR and resolution in imaging of brain.

Results from case studies are not predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary.

This is not for use in the USA
