Patient
female, 19 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    MRI
     

    Sagittal T1-weighted image showing a high signal intensity intradural lesion at the dorsal surface of the cervicothoracic cord.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology spine; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    Sagittal T2-weighted image showing a high signal intensity intradural lesion at the dorsal surface of the cervicothoracic cord. The cord is thinned, distorted and displaced anteriorly.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology spine; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    MRI
     

    Sagittal T1-weighted image without and with fat saturation. Note that the high signal intensity of the lesion decreases when the fat suppression sequence is used.
