The lower thoracic cord from T10 to T12 is expanded and demonstrates an ill-defined T2 hyperintensity in two segments. At the level of the upper portion of T10 there is a ventral and then almost complete but mainly right-sided expansion and T2 signal change. It is isointense on T1. This ends at the lower half of the T11 vertebral body but there is a second area of involvement behind the T12 vertebral body extending down to the conus at the T12/L1 disc level. No contrast enhancement is present.
The abnormality involves the intramedullary cord with no abnormality of the extra dural space. No flow-voids or vascular anomalies are noted. No blood products are present within or outside the cord.There is an incidental haemangioma in the vertebral body of T6.
