MRI of neuroblastoma in 2-year-old girl

Case Study
Chung, Taylor, M.D. Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland • USA

Patient history

A sedated 2-year-old girl with neuroblastoma underwent a MRI scan at Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland (CHRCO, Oakland, California, USA)

MR examination

The MRI examination was performed on Achieva 3.0T using mDIXON TSE.

mDIXON TSE T1W post contrast


The first two images show the extensive tumor (neuroblastoma) extending through the right-side neural foramen and exerting mass effect upon the cervical cord. This is also shown well on the coronal mDIXON TSE image.

Clinical impact

The post-contrast T1W TSE axial image of the neck shows failing fat suppression around the top of the right shoulder, while good fat suppression is seen on the mDIXON TSE image.
