Figure 3 Osteoporotic compression fracture. This 72-year-old woman presented with a 1-month history of low back pain with radiation into the left paraspinal region and numbness in the left anterior thigh beginning after a fall from ground level onto her knee. She had been receiving acupuncture and traditional bonesetting therapy and had no previous imaging. The T12 vertebral body shows marrow edema and a hypointense horizontal fracture line is noted in this T2-weighted mid-sagittal image (arrow), which remains hypointense in T1-weighted images (not shown). The patient was referred to an orthopedist but was ultimately treated conservatively. Arrow added by RT using GNU Image Manipulation Program (Version 2.10.30).
