The functional sequence of RM (IDW, DTI, SRM and PRM), are powerful tools, which to add conventional resonance magnetic result larger capacity diagnostic, ennoble the sensitivity and specificity for each pathologic entity. The knowledge of principles physical for each type sequences, as soon as artifact that change image quality and pos-process, are elements that know the radiologist for appropriate interpretation. Since end the last century, to added more an more knowledge to resonance magnetic, this work is review of literature and treat above the principles physical, the artifact that disturbance image and to explain the intensity signal changes from physiopatologic point and indications.

    Marchiafava-Bignami syndrome is a rare condition. However, with the advent of MRI, more and more of these cases are being diagnosed. Thus, it becomes essential for a radiologist to be familiar with its imaging features as well as clinical presentation. A 50-year-old chronic alcoholic presented...

    Seizures, which may be the main expression of cerebral arteriovenous malformations (CAVM) can be difficult to control medically. Our goal was to use perfusion-weighted imaging (PWI) in correlation with clinical data to detect abnormal areas of the cerebrum related to a particular type of CAVM...

    Rathke's cleft cysts (RCCs), also known as pars intermedia cysts, represent benign lesions formed from remnants of the embryologic Rathke's pouch. Commonly asymptomatic, they are identified in nearly 1 in 6 healthy volunteers undergoing brain imaging. When symptomatic, they can cause headaches,...
