Chronic Post-Traumatic Brain Injury, MRI
This Sagittal (from the side or lateral) T1 weighted MRI image demonstrates an area of chronic post-traumatic encephalomalacia (brain damage) in a typical location in the anterior temporal lobe (indicated by the red arrow). Because the temporal lobe is so close to the adjacent bony skull base the brain hits the bone during the injury and then over time becomes atrophic and gliotic (brains response to injury). In the chronic phase the area of injury on MRI shows lower (looks darker) signal on T1 and higher (brighter or whiter) signal on T2 weighted images. The yellow asterisk indicates enlargement of the adjacent temporal horn of the lateral ventricle indicative of chronic brain tissue loss.
