Figure 6 (A-F): Irregular shaped mass lesion (star) in the lateral aspect of the anterior 2/3rd of the left tongue with no extension across the midline and no obvious involvement of the floor of the mouth/sublingual space. The lesion appears isointense on T1 (A), heterogeneously hyperintense on T2 (B), and hyperintense on STIR (C and D) showing contrast enhancement on T1 + c images (E and F) with a central focus of nonenhancement—s/o necrosis. Axial T2 weighted fat-suppression MR image (B) demonstrates a nodular mass lesion in the anterior 2/3rd of the oral tongue with infiltration of the genioglossus (short arrow) and reaching up to sublingual space invading mylohyoid (long arrow). Coronal T1 + c image (E) shows no obvious invasion of the floor of mouth
