Cavernous angioma (MRI)

Axial T2 (A), diffusion (B), precontrast T1 (C), postcontrast T1 (D), and FLAIR (E) weighted images at the level of the right frontal cavernous angioma. These lesions are typically popcorn-like, well-circumscribed lesions. A heterogenous core is typically due to varying stages of blood products and the lesion is often surrounded by a hypointense dark rim on the T2 weighted images.
