  • Figure 1
    Abdomen plain film

    Abdomen X-ray shows 7 cervical and 12 thoracic segments. There is no formation of the spinal segments below a hypoplastic/dysplastic L1 segment.

     
    Area of Interest: Spine; Imaging Technique: Plain radiographic studies; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Ultrasound of the spinal canal
     

    The conus medullaris extends to the level of T12, inferior to this level no vertebral bodies or spinal canal is identified. There is no defect in the skin surface.
