Figure 5 (A-J): Sagittal (A) and axial T2W (B) cervical spinal MRIs demonstrate ventral extradural fluid collection (white arrows) and focal myelomalacia involving the right side of the cord (notched arrow) at the site of the stab injury. Axial T2W images at T1-T2 disc level (C) again demonstrate the ventral fluid collection and the cystic myelomalacia in the right hemicord, with focal right posterolateral tethering of the cord (curved arrow). Serial axial images obtained immediately after lateral decubitus (D), after 1×360° rotation (E), and after 2×360° rotations (F) show right posterolateral leak of contrast (thick black arrows) and left posterolateral fluid collection (E,F) (black arrow). Delayed axial CT myelogram (G,H) show differential opacification of the thoracic ventral fluid collection (white arrows). Sagittal delayed dynamic CT myelogram (I) demonstrates small triangular contrast extravasation posterior to the thecal sac (blue arrows) and differential opacification of the ventral fluid collection (white arrows). Oblique sagittal delayed CT myelogram reformats (J) show contrast leak (thick black arrow)
