Diagnosis

Images show the bilateral nasolabial cyst. The cyst on the left is dark on T2-weighted imaging, probably because of high protein level or blood products.

Clinical impact

T2-weighted mDIXON TSE provides both water-only and in-phase image series in one scan with high quality and excellent homogenous fat suppression. Also post-contrast T1-weighted mDIXON TSE produces high quality water-only as well as in-phase images in one scan with excellent homogeneous fat suppression.
