E) Sagittal CT of the same patient showing retropulsed bone fragments within the canal. d c e in patients with mild to moderate initial neurologic deficits who also subsequently showed neurologic improvement. Schaefer et al12 studied the MRI patterns of SCI in detail by in cluding the size of the injured segment and correlated it with the neurologic status. They observed that cord edema that extended for more than one vertebral segment was asso ciated with a more severe initial deficit than were smaller areas of edema.
F) Coronal image also reveals a primary spiculated pulmonary mass lesion. whereas in benign fractures, the posterior wall appears intact or can have a sharp angulated fracture. Follow-up MRI in patients with persistent pain shows typical fluid signal within the vertebral body suspicious for a pseudarthrosis. in signal intensity on T2-weighted images because of adjacent hemorrhage and edema. On sagittal MRI scans, the ALL is observed as a thin, continuous band of low signal intensity that lies approximated to the anterior cortical surface of the vertebral bodies, in both T1 and T2 sagittal images.
In the Thoracolumbar Injury Classification and Severity Score (TLICS) and the AO classification, significant importance has been ascertained to PLC injury. The TLICS was developed by the Spine Trauma Abnormal enhancement is seen in the vertebrae on post–contrast medium- enhanced images; enhancement is usually homogeneous in the diffuse or patchy distribution Posterior bulging or break present; the presence of an epidural mass is said to have 80% sensitivity and 100% specificity for malignant fractures Isolated inferior end-plate compression fracture is rare and should raise the suspicion of pathological fracture Involvement of the pedicles is pathognomonic Multiple vertebral involvement; isolated L5 compression fracture in young individuals is suspicious for neoplastic etiology Study Group and is based on the morphology of the vertebral injury, the integrity of the PLC, and the neurologic status of the patient.
