From: Multi-detector row computed tomography (MDCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the evaluation of the mandibular invasion by squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) of the oral cavity. Correlation with pathological data

Figure 3

MRI SE T1 axial (a) and coronal planes before (b) and after gadolinium infusion (c).

MRI shows a left floor of the mouth tumour with an infiltration of medullary bone, that demonstrates hypointense signal in T1 and enhancement after gadolinium infusion in the edentulous site (arrows). CT in axial (d-e) planes shows normal mandibular cortex.

On the histologycal data the mandible was infiltrated (pathological stage T4).
