Abstract

Twenty patients with clinical TS were examined with CT, and twelve of these were also examined with MR imaging. Periventricular calcified nodules were better visualized with CT, but small cortical tubers were well demonstrated in the MR images. Alterations in the white matter, which are only visible with MR, appeared as linear hyperintensities in the T2-weighted images. All of the patients had subependymal nodules. Cortical tubers were present in fourteen patients (70%), and giant-cell astrocytomas were found in four patients (20%).
