Lower T sign (central sulcus)

Dr Craig Hacking and A.Prof Frank Gaillard et al.

The lower T sign is one of the features useful in identifying the central sulcus on cross-sectional imaging. 

It relies on identifying the inferior frontal sulcus which intersects the precentral sulcus in a "T" junction, thus defining the precentral gyrus. The central sulcus is the next posterior sulcus.

It should be distinguished from the upper T sign which is the confluence of the superior frontal sulcus with the precentral sulcus.
