Methemoglobin in free solution is very hyperintense on T1- and T2WI. Inside this high signal rim of metHb a hypointense area appears, representing residual deoxyhemoglobin. Around the hematoma on the T2WI there is a hypointense rim (hemosiderin and ferritin) and peripherally, surrounding this rim there is a high signal intensity, representing vasogenic edema.
