Caption: Chordoma spinal cancer. Coloured 3-D Computed Tomography (CT) scan of the spine and ribcage of a male patient in top view, showing cancer of the spine. This cancer is a mediastinal chordoma. Curved rib-bones of the ribcage are seen, with the front of the body at bottom. At top left and right are triangular bones of the shoulder blades; at centre is a vertebral bone (yellow) of the spine. Next to the vertebra (at right) is the cancerous tumour. Chordoma is defined as a malignant tumour arising from remnants of the embryonic notochord, that persists in adults as part of intervertebral discs. This rare tumour may affect posture, and be fatal due to the difficulty of surgical removal.
