Patient
female, 71 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    A sagittal T2W MRI scan of the lumbar spine

    This MRI image showing a large heterogeneous-signal mass arising anteriorly from the lower sacrum, consistent with a sacral chordoma.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Sagittal T2W MRI scan of the lumbar spine;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    A sagittal T2W MRI of the lumbar spine and an axial CT scan of the sacrum (bone windows)
     

    This sagittal T2W MRI demonstrating that the chordoma has marginally increased in size and now the third sacral segment is indistinct.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Sagittal T2W MRI of the lumbar spine and axial CT scan of sacrum ( bone windows );

    An image obtained on the axial cuts of the sacrum performed with CT, showing that there is bony erosion of the sacrum.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Sagittal T2W MRI of the lumbar spine and axial CT scan of sacrum ( bone windows );
     
     
  • Figure 3
    An axial T2W MRI at the level of the mid shaft of the humerus

    This image demonstrating that a part of the triceps muscle has been replaced by a lobulated high-signal mass.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial T2W MRI at the level of the mid shaft of the humerus;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    A sagittal T1W post-contrast scan through the humeral mass

    This image showing that the mass has a heterogeneous appearance and is radiologically similar to the primary sacral chordoma.
