Axial MR imaging through the brain at corresponding levels on T2- (A), FLAIR (B), T1- (C) and diffusion- (D) weighted images demonstrates multiple watershed areas of infarction throughout the brain in a young female having taken heroin. The white arrow indicates an area of hemorrhagic infarction in the right frontal lobe. (Contributed by Dr. Gomez-Hassan.)
