Fig. 2

Post-operative sagittal T2-weighted MRI of the cervical spine demonstrates resolution of the epidural hematoma with decompression of the spinal cord (asterisk) at the C7 level. There has been restoration of normal spinal canal volume and there is no evidence of residual cord compression or myelomalacia.
