Axial T1-weighted image (a), axial T2-weighted image with fat saturation (b), coronal T1-weighted images with fat saturation after contrast medium administration (c, d). The left sacral wing presents a wide area of altered signal, hypointense in T1 and hyperintense in T2, with marked contrast enhancement, indicating posttraumatic intracancellous edema. Note thin fracture lines, more evident in (b and c)
