Coloured Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan in sagittal section through the spine of the neck in a male patient aged 27, showing inflammation of the discs of vertebrae C1 and C3, known as spondylodiscitis. These discs are left of the spinal cord (running down centre) and this condition may cause them to press on the cord. The brain is at top.
