TECHNIQUE: A GE Horizon LX 1.5 Tesla Imaging System is used to perform this examination.
The study was carried out utilizing 10 cc OptiMark.
Pre-and post contrast enhanced images were obtained through the region of the sella turcica and reveal a mass which shows enhancement along its posterior aspect suggesting a fluid/fluid level. The lesion projects above the confines of the sella turcica and above the level of the diaphragma sella producing optic chiasmal impingement to some degree. The lesion measures 15.8 mm in craniocaudad extent by 14.2 mm in AP diameter by 17.8 mm in transverse diameter. The third ventricle is midline.
Whole brain imaging following contrast injection reveals no other enhancing lesions.
There is again noted polyp versus retention cyst in the left maxillary sinus. There are normal appearing vascular flow voids.
PITUITARY MASS AS NOTED ABOVE WITH PROBABLE FLUID/FLUID LEVEL.
THERE IS AGAIN NOTED A POLYPOID LESION IN THE LEFT MAXILLARY SINUS.
