Diffuse high signal abnormalities are identified in the corona radiata and centrum semiovale
on axial FLAIR images. Multiple low signal lesions are superimposed within the white matter
More inferior FLAIR axial images reveal similar findings in the internal capsule and gray nuclei.
A coronal T1 image (left) reveals a low signal abnormality in the region of the left caudate
head with mild ex vacuo dilatation of the left frontal horn. A diffusion weighted image (middle)
reveals high signal in the right internal capsule and lentiform nucleus with accompanying low
signal on ADC map (right).
