male, 17 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    MR, Sagittal images of lumbosacral spine
     

    Sagittal T2-WI. Large mass lesion within the sacrum with an overall intermediate to low signal intensity and a huge soft tissue component with peripheral areas of low signal (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Spine; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    Sagittal T1-WI. Large mass lesion within the sacrum with an overall low signal intensity. Intralesional areas of low intensity are seen as well (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Spine; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    Sagittal STIR sequence showing foci of hyperintense signal in the mass.

     
    Area of Interest: Spine; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Axial image of lumosacral spine, expansile mass from sacrum
     

    Axial T1WI, low intensity mass arsing from the sacrum.

     
    Area of Interest: Spine; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    Axial T1WI at L5-S1 level, homogeneous low intensity mass arsing from the sacrum. It is causing obliteration of spinal canal with further extension into paravertebral muscles, right iliac bone and adjacent muscles.

     
    Area of Interest: Spine; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    Axial T2WI, high signal area within soft tissue representing necrotic /cystic component (arrow).
