MRI OF THE BRAIN WITH IAC’S:
TECHNIQUE: MRI of the brain was performed using a combination of T1 and T2 weighted axial, sagittal and coronal images. Additional thin section images were also obtained through the cerebellopontine angles for evaluation of the internal auditory canals.
CLINICAL INFORMATION: The brain parenchyma shows normal signal intensity. There is no confluent edema or mass effect. There is no extra-axial collection identified. The corpus callosum is well formed and it is in good position. The cerebellar tonsils are unremarkable. The pituitary gland is normal in size. The cavernous sinuses are symmetric. The basal cisterns are symmetric in appearance.
The cerebellopontine angle cisterns are normal in appearance, without mass or mass effect. The VII and VIII nerve complexes are unremarkable. There is no evidence for vestibular schwannoma or other mass. Trigeminal nerves are symmetric in caliber and in normal position. There are normal flow voids in the basilar artery and along the circle of Willis.
1. The exam is within normal limits. The brain parenchyma is normal in appearance, without edema or mass identified. Cerebellopontine angle cisterns are intact, without evidence for vestibular schwannoma or other abnormality.
