Figure 11: Pathological fracture in patient with multiple myeloma. Sagittal T1 W (a), T2 W (b) and post-contrast (c) MR images show severe fracture at L5 level with complete vertebral collapse and soft tissue component bulging posteriorly causing compression of cauda equina (arrow). Multiple other vertebrae show altered signal intensity and enhancement. Diffusion weighted images obtained at b-value of 1000 (d) show restricted diffusion at L5 and in sacrum and in other lumbar vertebrae
