Usually associated with significant clinical findings related to the severity and type of neural tube defect. 37â•… (a) Sagittal and (b) coronal CT show a patient with scoliosis related to a tripediculate vertebra, which is seen as a wedge-shaped vertebral body containing two pedicles on the enlarged left side (arrows) and one pedicle on the shortened side, with associated molding of adjacent vertebral bodies toward the shortened side. 38â•… Axial CT shows spina bifida occulta with a midline defect where the lamina do not fuse (arrow).

Findings include osseous expansion and cortical thickening with low signal on T1- and T2-weighted imaging. The inner margins of the thickened cortex can be irregular and indistinct. Zones of low signal on T1- and T2-weighted imaging can be seen in the diploic marrow secondary to thickened bony trabeculae. Marrow in late or inactive phases of Paget disease can have signal similar to normal marrow, contain focal areas of fat signal, have low signal on T1- and T2-weighted imaging secondary to regions of sclerosis, have areas of high signal on fat-suppressed T2-weighted imaging caused by edema or persistent fibrovascular tissue, or have various combinations of the aforementioned.
