Counting from C2, the last unfused vertebra is taken as L5. Spinal cord ends normal at L1 level.
Moderately enhancing masses are involving almost the entire spine, hypointense on T1 and intermediate signal on T2 images, though preserved vertebral body and disc heights.
There is associated paraspinal extension of the lobulated masses with anterior epidural extension at T11–L2 levels, resulting in significant spinal canal stenosis and compression of the cord and nerve roots in the cauda equina.
Anterior epidural extension of the mass is also noted at C7–T2 levels causing mild to moderate spinal canal stenosis and abutting the cord.
6.7 cm lobulated soft tissue mass in the right side of pelvic cavity, compressing right lateral wall of the bladder. 3.5 cm left retroperitoneal nodule.
