Figure 1: Spine MRI performed two days after the surgery. (a) The sagittal section of the MRI, T2-weighted imaging, revealed an abnormal increase in the signal intensity affecting the spinal cord from T7 to L1 levels with focal cord enlargement. (b) The axial section of the MRI, T2-weighted imaging, revealed high signal intensities in the anterior two-third of the spinal cord. Acute spinal cord infarction may be visualised as two rounded intramedullary high-intensity lesions, named the “owl's eye” appearance
