They vary in size but are usually less than 1 em. On cr, noncalcified foci may appear as multiple, punctate, low-attenuation areas. Calcified foci may appear as multiple high-density lesions. On MRI, they can be seen as multiple, punctate, low-signalintensity lesions on Tl-WI, T2-WI, and gradient-echo sequences. The blooming artifact on gradient-echo images is pathognomonic for this entity because these sequences are more sensitive to detect the superparamagnetic effect of hemosiderin.
