Left: Axial T2 image shows an ovoid mass that is mildly hyperintense but brighter than
the surrounding tongue.
Right: Coronal T1 images show a low T1 signal mass in the right posterior tongue.
Sagittal, axial and Coronal T1 post-contrast images show that the mass enhances with
relatively well-defined borders. On the axial and coronal images, the mass appears to
contact the right side of the mandible but no bony erosion is evident.
