Magnetic resonance image of lumbar vertebrae obtained on the 10th hospital day. T1-weighted image (T1WI) and short T1 inversion recovery (STIR) T2 image (a, b), respectively. The lumbar sequence is linearized and the findings do not suggest a compression fracture, i.e. there is no dip-related transformation of the vertebral body. Vertebral bodies L3 and L4 have a low signal on T1WI and a high signal on STIR. The intervertebral disk is low and has a linear T2 high signal. We thus suspected this lesion to represent inflammation and/or degeneration
