Carcinoma of the lung, disease, vertigo, difficulty walking and
speaking. History of previous brain metastasis.
1. Sagittal 5-mm
paramidline noncontrast T1-weighted images.
2. Axial T2 and FLAIR images C1 to
3. Axial and coronal postcontrast T1-weighted
images through the brain.
Comparason is made to multiple previous
There are extensive high FLAIR and T2 signal white matter
findings in both cerebral hemispheres. These are somewhat more
prominent on the left than right. A similar pattern is noted on
multiple previous studies and the findings are consistent with postradiation
white matter change. There is encephalomalacia of the left frontal
lobe, at the site of a previous metastasis. There is a moderate
degree of atrophy. There is no focal mass lesion. There
are chronic lacunar infarcts within the left basa ganglia.
is a small focus of diminished T2 signal in the left frontal lobe white
matter. Previous studies have demonstrated a small focus of
susceptibility artifact on diffusion-weighted imaging at this
location. This likely reflects a small focus of hemosiderin
deposition. The previous studies have demonstrated metastasis at
this location, which has completely resolved. This most likely
reflects a small focus of hemosiderin deposition at this site of a resolved

enhancement. There is no evidence to suggest new metastatic
lesions. There is no mass effect or midline shift. No
extra-axial fluid collections is noted.
