This study aimed to evaluate the clinical impact of coronal image of the spine at initial presentation for
magnetic resonance imaging of the spine. Images were evaluated by two experienced radiologists, the
added value of the additional sequence was assessed. Correlation was made with surgery or clinical followup
at 3 months. We concluded that the coronal image of the spine is of great value in detecting extraspinal
lesion in magnetic resonance imaging of the spine.
