The Spleen Revisited: An Overview on Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Figure 20

Siderotic splenic nodules (Gamma-Gandy bodies). Axial T2* (a), axial 2D-GRE T1w in-phase (b) and out-of-phase (c), and pre (d) and postcontrast axial 3D-GRE T1wi with fat suppression at the arterial phase (e). Note the splenomegaly with multiple foci of hemosiderin with low signal intensity on all pulse sequences and exhibiting the “blooming” artifact on in-phase (longer TE) GRE sequences, secondary to iron deposition. No enhancement is depicted.
