Figure 1: The sagittal non fat-saturated T1 image (a) shows atrophy and hyperintense signal within the tongue (white arrow) secondary to fatty replacement giving a “bright tongue” appearance. The axial T2 image (b) confirms the hyperintensity within the intrinsic muscles of the tongue. Note the suppression of hyperintense signal on the T2 fat saturated images (c). The image (d) is T1 sagittal image of an age matched normal individual showing the normal bulk and signal of the tongue
