Patient Data

Age: 70 years
Gender: Female
MRI

Left calvarial durally based mass with low signal in T1, high signal in T2 and FLAIR with central focus of low signal likely calcification. Mild enhancement in post contrast study and diffusion restriction in DWI except the calcific focus.

Case Discussion

Due to frequent high cellularity, meningiomas often demonstrate high signal on DWI. ADC map (not present here) showed low signal denoted true water molecular movement  restriction.
