Right temporal focal meningeal thickening is also noted.
- The left eye globe is the seat of posterior uveal mass infiltrating the posterior uveal wall along the temporal aspect of the optic disc encroaching upon it. It elicits intermediate T1 and low T2 signal intensities with mild post contrast enhancement and mild diffusion restriction (red arrow).
