Click A non-contrast enhanced axial CT scan of the brain in a 38 year old man presenting with right parietal cortical vein thrombosis, showing no abnormality.

Click 38 year old man with right parietal cortical vein thrombosis. A non-contrast enhanced axial T2 weighted MRI scan of the brain shows a hyperintense signal in the right parietal region. (Best seen on slice position 13 to 15)

Click 38 year old man with right parietal cortical vein thrombosis. A non-contrast enhanced axial gradient echo MRI scan of the brain demonstrates the hemorrhagic component as susceptibility artifact. (Best seen on slice position 11 and 12)

Click 38 year old man with right parietal cortical vein thrombosis. A non-contrast enhanced axial diffusion weighted MRI scan of the brain shows a bright signal in the right parietal region. (Best seen on slice position 8 to 10)

Click 38 year old man with right parietal cortical vein thrombosis. A non-contrast enhanced coronal FLAIR MRI scan of the brain shows a hyperintense signal in the right parietal region. (Best seen on slice position 4)

Click 38 year old man with right parietal cortical vein thrombosis. A non-contrast enhanced sagittal T1 weighted MRI scan of the brain showing hyperintense signal in teh expected location of the cortical vein and surrounding T1 hypointensity in the right parietal parenchyma. (Best seen on slice position 10)

Click 38 year old man with right parietal cortical vein thrombosis. Follow up 5 months later. A non-contrast enhanced axial T2 weighted MRI scan of the brain showing disappearance of the hyperintense signals noted in the previous study.

Click 38 year old man with right parietal cortical vein thrombosis. A non-contrast enhanced axial gradient echo MRI scan of the brain showing disappearance of the hyperintense signals noted in the previous study. Note in the right parietal region susceptibility artifact due to hemosiderin, representing old hemorrhage. (Best seen on slice position 11 and 12)
