Hypointense rounded structure both on T1 and T2, just anterior to the dorsal spine impressing the esophagus that does not look proximally.
On the coronal image, an aberrant artery originating from the aortic arch is seen.
The origin and course of the aberrant right subclavian artery (aka arteria lusoria) are well seen in the coronal acquisition.
In our institution, a coronal acquisition is part of the standard spine exam providing useful additional information.
