A Axial T2W MR shows hyperintense silicone oil with characteristic chemical shift artefact within the temporal horn of the right lateral ventricle and the vitreous chamber of the right globe. T2 hyperintensity is also noted in the right side of optic chiasm due to the tracking of silicone oil along the optic nerve. B Axial T2-FLAIR image shows hyperintense silicone oil mimicking intraventricular/intraocular haemorrhage. C Non-contrast Axial T1WI shows hyperintense silicone oil. D Post-contrast Axial T1 Fat Suppressed (T1 FS + C) image shows a lack of enhancement within the globules. E Axial diffusion-weighted image (DWI) shows a lack of diffusion restriction within the globules. F Axial Gradient Recall Echo (GRE) shows susceptibility artefact in the aforementioned areas of T2 hyperintensity
