Spinal cord damage suspicion is the most frequent cause to perform MRI in an emergency department. TSET1, TSET and STIR in a sagittal plane are the basic sequences to start the spine imaging test. Spinal cord compression is a surgical emergency and usually requires prompt surgical decompression to prevent permanent neurological impairment. There are numerous causes of cord compression and they can be divided according to the location of the compressing mass. Vertebral fracture, vertebral metastasis, degenerative changes and spinal cord injury without radiographic abnormality (SCIWORA) were pathologies that we detected.
