BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE T2 hyperintensity of the middle cerebellar peduncle (MCP) is described in a number of diseases, including multiple system atrophy (MSA). We hypothesize that mild MCP hyperintensity on fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) imaging can be a normal finding. To our knowledge, a detailed study of the prevalence of this finding in various age groups with the FLAIR sequence has not been described. METHODS One hundred twenty-two patients underwent an axial FLAIR… CONTINUE READING
