Caption

Bone cancer. Coloured sagittal (side) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan through the neck of a patient with secondary bone cancer of three spinal vertebrae (orange). The front of the body is at left. The cancerous vertebrae are (from bottom): the top two thoracic (chest) vertebrae (T2 and T1) and the seventh cervical (neck) vertebra (C7). The spinal cord is seen in the space at right of the highlighted portions of the vertebrae. The cancer has spread (metastasized) from a site of primary cancer in the lung. Spread of cancer to the spine is common. The prognosis is very poor. Treatments such as steroid drugs and radiotherapy are aimed at preserving function and quality of life.
