57-year-old female has a history of colon carcinoma with known liver metastases. She now presents with numbness in the distribution of the median nerve bilaterally.
T1-weighted images (Film 1) and T2-weighted images (Film 2) demonstrate areas of signal abnormality in the vertebral bodies at C6, T1 and T3.

A prevertebral soft tissue mass is seen in the midline and to the right of the spine (arrow in C-T1-weighted images).
