Abstract: We present dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) and diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features in three cases of sinonasal organized hematoma. The DCE MRI was evaluated by analyzing the time-intensity curve patterns on a pixel-by-pixel basis and diffusion-weighted MRI by analyzing the apparent diffusion coefficient maps. Preoperative information on the physiological tumor properties obtained with these MRI techniques may be useful in differentiating organized hematomas from other benign or malignant tumors or tumorlike lesions in the sinonasal area.
