Abdominal CT of the abdomen without IV contrast shows, incidentally, an enlarged spinal canal with a bone bridge that separates the canal. Hence, there is two distinct compartments and diastematomyelia. There is dehiscence of the posterior vertebral arch and synostosis of adjacent vertebrae.
Fusion of adjacent laminae is virtually pathognomonic for diastematomyelia.
