Again identified stable changes related to left-sided craniotomy. The left
parietal lobe resection cavity is unchanged in appearance since the prior
exam. The prior described nonenlarged T2/FLAIR hyperintensities surrounding
the medial and anterior aspect of the inferior part of the resection cavity
(604/38 and 39) unchanged in appearance since the prior exam.
Hypointense signal involving the medulla on T2 appear to be artifacts.
Postcontrast imaging demonstrates linear enhancement in the surgical cavity
underlying the craniotomy this is unchanged from the prior exam.
No nodular enhancement in the surgical bed. Small DVA in right frontal lobe.
There is no acute infarction. No mass effect no hydrocephalus.
The major intracranial flow voids show expected appearance.
Bilateral paranasal sinuses and mastoid air cells are clear. Bilateral orbits
