Patient came with headache. 

(A) image showed a FLAIR sequence hyperintensity but it was not seen in any other sequence, which was not normal. I suspected hemorrhage at first but without edema or mass effect I was not sure. So I asked if this was an artifact. 

The technician asked if she had dental implants, earings or keys with her. She said no, but had her mini purse with coins in her brassiere (bra). We did a control without the purse and.. (B)

This is a common thing in older patients to introduce the purse inside the bra. Apparently she forgot she had it there.

Overflow artifact?  

Simple thing to have in mind in case you see a similar one. Bye.
