This is called a TI-weighted image, in which the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is dark. ) This image is from an adult, in which no pathology was found in the spinal cord radiological examination. Because of the length of the spinal cord, it is being shown in two parts — upper and lower. The vertebral bodies, the intervertebral discs and the spinous processes posteriorly have been labeled, as well as the ligamentum flavum (discussed with the previous illustration). The vertebral bodies have been numbered at various levels — C2, T1, L1, and S1.
