Central sulcus

Case contributed by Michael Zeineh
Diagnosis not applicable


Normal volunteer.


Axial 3D IR-FSPGR depicting loss of gray-white at the central sulcus. Note the more striking gray-white anterior and posterior to the central sulcus.


In addition to loss of gray-white at the central sulcus, one can note the thicker cortex anteriorly and thinner posteriorly.


Though more subtle, the finding is still definitely present in this case.
