Figure 1: Sagittal T2 (top row left), sagittal T1 post-contrast fat-saturated (FS) (top row right), and axial T2 images (middle row left) of the cervical spine demonstrate short segment (<2 vertebral bodies in length), T2 hyperintense lesions in the peripheral aspect of the spinal cord with variable enhancement. Axial T1 post-contrast (middle row right) and axial T2FS (bottom row) images of the brain demonstrate a T2 hyperintense lesion in the left frontal periventricular white matter with an incomplete ring of enhancement. The length of the lesions in the cervical spinal cord and the enhancement pattern and location of the lesion in the brain are most compatible with Multiple Sclerosis.
