Sag/Ax T2W: Homogeneous very high T2W signal fills an expanded thoracic intervertebral
disc space, and is contiguous with high signal ventral epidural collection extending over two
levels and severely narrowing the central canal. Multiple small rounded high-signal areas are
seen in the psoas muscles bilaterally on axial imaging.
Sag/Ax T1W FS: No enhancement within the disc; diffuse enhancement of both adjacent
vertebral bodies, with endplate irregularity; psoas collections show rim enhancement.
