A Computed tomography scan reveals a hyperdense lesion in the right occipital lobe with perifocal edema. The lesion has a heterogeneous density with a very dense core and reduced attenuation values at the peripheral zone. b T2*-weighted gradient-echo image displays the lesion as a dark spot. c The T2-weighted turbo spin-echo image shows a dark center with a bright rim of edema. d This flow-sensitive gradient-echo sequence demonstrates a bright core with a pseudocapsule. A maximum-intensity projection of this sequence will display arterial vessels and the bright hemorrhage, giving rise to a misinterpretation of the cavernoma as an aneurysm.
