Interesting Imaging (3)

.
This patient came with an episode of seizure. He had similar episodes in the past and an intracranial intervention was done but he couldn't be sure what exactly it was.
.
A junior doc found the brain scan strange-looking and interpreted as "?Star effect".
.
What do you think it is and, what intervention was most likely done?

This look super weird.

I'm waiting for the answer. =D

I think that it appears to be some metallic component left in the frontal area of the brain (therefore causing the bright artefact) - from the past intracranial intervention.
Possible ?stent insertion due to aneurysm? I'm not very sure.

Some kind of metal was inserted into the brain. I dunno la, maybe brachytherapy for brain ca??

Quite near to the answer..it's right that there's "something" in the brain causing that..;)

Ok this is a CT brain for a patient post embolization for AV malformation, demonstrating onyx material with significant beam-hardening artifact in the previous location of the malformation.
