Figure 2: (a-d) Phase-contrast cine MRI of the thoracic spine demonstrating free flow of CSF in the dorsal subarachnoid space (large arrows) and interrupted flow ventrally at the level of the herniation (small arrows). See normal flow ventrally at a higher level (interrupted arrows in a and b). Cursors have been placed over the cord at the level of the herniation (c) and superior to it (d). There is limited cord motion at the level of the herniation, as seen by a minimal deflection of the pulse wave, from the baseline, whereas normal cord motion is identified above the herniation
