|Objective: To Illustrate the anterior-posterior relationships of the aorta, trachea, esophagus and spine. Used to clarify a thoracic MRI to be used as an exhibit in medical-legal case. The anterior spinal artery is shown so the jury could understand the primary means of perfusion of the spinal cord as a secondary objective; however, the attorney requested that the spinal branches between the posterior intercostal arteries and the anterior spinal artery be omitted to keep the image simple for the intended audience.
