Abstract

We report the appearance of a thoracic intradural arachnoid cyst on cine-mode magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Based on the operative findings, cine-mode MRI was more sensitive for identifying the intradural location of arachnoid cysts than was conventional MRI. The value of cine-mode MRI in diagnosing this rare entity is discussed.
