Figure 2 :(A-D)Sagittal T1W (A), sagittal T2W (B), and coronal T2W (C) MRI images show swelling of the nucleus pulposus with hypointense signal (arrows) on both the T1W and T2W images, due to calcification. The coronal T2W image (C) clearly shows the dumbbell-shaped calcification with intravertebral herniation without end plate destruction (arrow). Sagittal STIR MRI image (D) shows evidence of marrow edema (arrows) in the bodies of the adjacent vertebrae
