Term:Hyperintensity of MRI T2 signal of the spinal cord

Accession:HP:0040272 term browser browse the term
Definition:A region of high intensity (brightness) observed upon magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of the spinal cord.
Comment:Seen in a wide-ranging variety of spinal cord processes including; simple MR artefacts, congenital anomalies etc. Characterization of the abnormal areas of T2 signal as well as their appearance on other MR imaging sequences, when combined with clinical context and laboratory investigations, will often allow a unique diagnosis, or at least aid in narrowing the differential diagnosis. {xref="PMID:19527360"}
