Figure 2: Axial sections of MRI of brain of a patient with acute necrotizing hemorrhagic encephalitis. T1-weighted image (a and a1), T2-weighted image (b and b1), and fluid attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) image (c and c1) show symmetrical hyperintensities in bilateral thalami and cerebellar hemispheres. Axial sections of MRI brain diffusion sequence (d), apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) map (e), and gradient sequence (f) at the level of bilateral thalami showing restricted diffusion (d) and corresponding low ADC value (e) in bilateral thalami suggestive of cytotoxic edema. Few foci of blooming are seen in bilateral thalami on gradient sequence (f) suggestive of haemorrhage. Red arrows showing symmetrical hyperintensities in bilateral thalami
