Figure 2: Sagittal T1-weighted (a), T2-weighted (b) and gradient echo (c) and Coronal Short tau inversion recovery (d) images of cervical spine. There is linear hypointense signal with blooming on gradient echo sequence involving near complete thickness of cord at C5 mid vertebral body level, likely partial transection (c). Note the central focal T2 hypointense cord signal at this level likely hemorrhagic contusion. There is diffuse surrounding T2 hyperintense signal from C3 vertebral body level to C6-7 disc level likely cord edema (b). Short tau inversion recovery image (d) showing transverse hypointense signal involving near complete thickness of cord at C5 mid vertebral body level likely partial transection
