Figure 18 (A-C): (A) axial fat-saturated T1W FSE, (B) Coronal fat-saturated T2W FSE sequence and (C) post-contrast axial T1 fat-saturated MRI images of the same patient reveals multilocular cystic appearance in a case of tuberculous pyonephrosis on right side. There is significant global thinning of the renal parenchyma. The cystic lesions are predominantly hyperintense, but reveal multiple scattered areas of intermediate signal within, along with few septae (black arrow). The left upper pole renal lesion appears slightly hyperintense on T2-weighted images suggestive of a focal area of caseous necrosis (white arrow)
