Overview

Brain MRI is the gold standard test for the diagnosis of central pontine myelinolysis. The following findings on performing Brain MRI are confirmatory for central pontine myelinolysis: T2 hyperintensity in the central pontine region in the axial plane and hyperintense lesion in the midpons in the midsagittal T2-weighted MRI.
