The body and left pedicle of T6 are largely replaced by hypointenseenhancing material. Changes in the trabecula and the cortex are also present and thefeatures are entirely in keeping with the clinical history of haemangioma. There isextraosseous haemangioma as well on the left lateral aspect of the vertebral body andalso in the left anterior and left lateral aspect of the epidural space at the samelevel. The combination of features results in minimal flattening of the lateraldiameters of the canal.
Similar changes are present in the left pedicle of T7. The extraosseous soft tissuematerial probably narrows the left T6-T7 exit foramen to a mild degree. It wouldrequire clinical correlation to determine whether the left T6 root is affected by thisprocess.
No other relevant abnormal finding.
Bony haemangioma of the body and left pedicle of T6 and also at the left pedicle ofT7. There is a significant amount of intra and extradural extraosseous soft tissuematerial. At this stage this probably impacts upon the left T6 root at foramen leveland it displaces but does not compress the cord in the midthoracic region.
