Here is My Question:
Lesion Location - Superior Frontal Gyrus
My last MRI showed foci of T2 and FLAIR hyperintensity found in the superior frontal gyrus. This was done on a 3T MRI.
Does this mean they were in the cortex? I’m trying to understand exactly where that is, mostly for curiosities sake.
It is hard to say where the presumed T2 hyperintensity (what you refer to as a “lesion”) is located without reviewing the images. Radiologists are sometimes inexact in their descriptions. If the report says, “superior frontal gyrus” , this could mean the white matter, the gray matter (cortex) or both.
