Figure 2: (a) CT cervical spine of a 28-year-old male showing multiple cervical vertebral fractures including transverse process of C5, vertebral body, and posterior column of C6 and comminuted fracture of transverse process of C7, (b) MRI spine cervical and thoracic of 26-year-old female showing fracture dislocation at T6-T7 vertebral levels with left antrolateral displacement and overriding of the body of T6 over T7 vertebral bodies. Evidence of near total transaction of the dorsal spinal cord at the level of the lower end plate of T6 vertebra with intramedullary areas of high intensity in T1-T2-weighted images (hemorrhagic parenchyma contusions). There is also partial vertical compression of T8, T10, and T11 vertebrae
