Figure 1 (A and B): Axial schematic representation (A) and T1-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) image (B) demonstrate the root of the tongue. The high-signal-intensity lingual septum (ls) is clearly seen and is flanked by the genioglossus muscles (gg), which form an inverted V anteriorly before blending into the intrinsic muscles of the mobile tongue. The sublingual spaces (sls) are lateral to the genioglossus and geniohyoid muscles and also show high T1 signal intensity. Axial T1-weighted image (B) shows the tongue muscles, genioglossus (long arrow), and hyoglossus (short arrow)
