Discussion of patient 7 continued on pp. 34-35. 34 Patient Scans Patient 7 Neuroradiologicalfindings: (8 mm slice thickness) 1. Although still slightly hyperdense in relation to frontal white matter, the R lentiform nucleus shows less attenuation in comparison to its L counterpart 2. More distinct hypo density of the R frontal, insular, and temporal cortex. "Loss of the R insular ribbon" (short arrows) 3.

Questionable hyperdense MCA sign (curved arrow). The slice is slightly oblique. Comparison with the contralateral MCA is not possible 2.
