  • Figure 1
    Thoracolumbar MRI
     

    The sagittal T1-weighted image shows the presence of multiple hypointense lesions located within the vertebral bodies (Eur Radiol 2002;11:F1-F14).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Thoracolumbar MRI;

    The sagittal T2-weighted image shows that the vertebral lesions are hyperintense, with the presence of a rim of high signal (probably corresponding to edema) around some of the lesions. (Eur Radiol 2002;11:F1-F14)

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Thoracolumbar MRI;

    The sagittal T1-weighted image after gadolinium injection shows strong enhancement of the lesions. In addition, there are no vertebral fractures and no disk involvement. The epidural space and soft tissues are spared....

  • Figure 2
    Total spine CT
     

    Transverse CT image at the level of L3 shows the presence of two different lesions of the vertebral body: the anterior lesion has a lytic and sclerotic appearance, and the posterior lesion is purely lytic. (Eur Radiol...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Total spine CT;

    Transverse CT image of the sacrum shows the presence of multiple lytic lesions with a sclerotic rim. (Eur Radiol 2002;11:F1-F14)

    Spiral unenhanced chest CT
     

    The transverse chest CT scan image (mediastinal windows) shows bilateral enlargement of mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes. (Eur Radiol 2002;11:F1-F14)

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Spiral unenhanced chest CT;

    Transverse chest CT scan image (lung windows) shows thickening of the peribronchovascular bundles, and parenchymal nodules in a peribronchovascular distribution. (Eur Radiol 2002;11:F1-F14)
