Figure 3: A middle-aged male who presented with partial seizures shows the calcified stage of neurocysticercosis without edema or gliosis in the right frontal lobe. The lesion is not visible on T2W image (a). Fluid attenuating inversion recovery image (b) and double-inversion recovery image (c) shows no perilesional signal change. On susceptibility weighted imaging magnitude image (d), the lesion appears hypointense and shows a positive phase on phase image (e). The lesion shows mild rim enhancement (black arrow) on a postcontrast T1-weighted image (f)
