The graphs show the number of focal abnormal signal intesities (FASI) at baseline and last MRI scans in patients with NF1 plotted against the age at which each MRI scan was done. Five brain locations are shown - (a) cerebellum, (b) brainstem, (c) thalamus and hypothalamus, (d) basal ganglia and internal capsule, and E: cerebrum. Each line connects individual patients. Patients who only had one MRI are shown as lone circles. Patient #54, who had numerous cerebral lesions is excluded in (e). The number of FASI decreased significantly as age increased in all brain regions with the exception of the cerebral region
