Figure 2

Magnetic resonance image of swollen biceps muscle after intramuscular injection of synthol in (A) coronal T1-weighted turbo spin echo sequence and (B) transverse T2-weighted turbo spin echo sequence. Due to the presence of fat in the injected suspension, the total muscle had a hyperintense signal in T1-weighted and T2-weighted images compared with the surrounding healthy muscles. Several cystic lesions are scattered within the muscle with a hyperintense signal. These lesions are oil deposits between the muscle bundles.
