Magnetic Resonance Imaging: A) Inversion recovery (IR) axial thoracic spine demonstrates skin thickening and edema signal in subcutaneous tissue (arrows); B) axial IR bilateral thigh muscles before cyclophosphamide (CYC) with bilateral edema-like signal in the muscles and fascia (arrows); C) axial bilateral thighs fat suppressed T2 weighted images after 6 months of CYC demonstrates near complete resolution of the edema signal, with mild residual signal in the vastus lateralis (arrows)
The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the thoracic spine
(Fig. 2 a) demonstrated skin thickening, diffuse edema, and
stranding in the subcutaneous soft tissues extending along the
fascial planes and mild diffuse abnormal signal in the posterior
The MRI of the pelvis and thighs (Fig. 2 b, inversion
recovery axial scan of thighs) showed nearly symmetric edema-like
signal in the regional muscles and fascial planes (more pronounced
along the biceps femoris, vastus intermedius, and vastus lateralis
muscles) without muscle atrophy.
His pelvis and thigh MRI showed improved edema in the soft tissues
(Fig. 2 c). .
