Figure 4: a) Showing pictorial representation of vessels supplying Spinal cord in sagittal and transaxial views. The Adamkiewicz artery is the largest segmental medullary artery typically arises from a left posterior intercostal artery, which branches from aorta and supplies two thirds of the spinal cord via anterior spinal artery. In 75% of people, the artery of Adamkiewicz originates on the left side of the aorta between the D9 and D11 vertebral segments. In approximately 30% of people it arises from the right side. 25% of population can have two large anterior segmental medullary arteries; b) MR Transaxial view showing no altered signals in D11/D12 levels; c) Transaxial view of FDG PET CT depicting abnormal FDG uptake intraspinally at D11/12 vertebral level (SUV Max is 3.95 g/ml). The branching of vessels supplying spinal cord have been highlighted with arrow in all three images
