Images 1 & 2: Axial T2 weighted images of brain reveal bilateral
symmetrical hyperintense areas in thalamus and posterior putamen.
Image 3: Axial proton density weighted image demonstrates again the
high signal lesions in thalamus and putamen on both sides.
Image 4 & 5: Axial pre and post gadolinium T1 weighted images
demonstrate the basal ganglion lesions as slightly hypointense areas
with no significant contrast enhancement.
