A 67-year-old woman with osteoporotic fracture of T7 vertebra. a Mid sagittal CT shows vertebral compression changes and osteoporotic changes (arrow). b, c T1-weighted and T2-weighted images. The lesion is hypointense on T1-weighted image (arrow) and hyperintense on T2-weighted image (arrow). d IVIM-DWI image, high signal, and regions of interest were placed within lesion (circle), f = 0.128, D = 1.65 × 10−3 mm2/s, D* = 1.84 × 10−2 mm2/s. e MRS, LPA = 4900, WPA = 5320, lipid fraction of 47.79 at T7
