Diagnosis: Dens Fracture - Type II - MRICervical MRI (A=T1, B=T2, C=STIR) in sagittal plane demonstrate a slightly oblique, mildly posteriorly displaced and angulated fracture through the base of the dens (full arrow). There is associated adjacent bone marrow edema (dotted arrow) confirming the acute state of injury. Prevertebral fluid collection extending from the level of the dens to C4 (asterisk) is secondary to ligamentous injury.
