MR imaging of the pituitary fossa characteristically shows a well-circumscribed area of high signal intensity in the posterior lobe on T1-weighted images. We used a combination of high-field MR, electron microscopy, and histologic techniques in experimental animals to determine whether the hyperintensity of the posterior lobe might be functionally related to hormone neurosecretory processes, and to attempt to establish its chemical nature. Histologic sections of a dog's pituitary gland… CONTINUE READING
