Sagittal fat-saturated T1-weighted images off the midline to the right (A), at the midline (B), and off the midline to the left (C). Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) in a 13-year-old boy with peripheral neuropathy and gait disturbance. D, E, F, and G, Axial postcontrast T1-weighted fat-saturated images through the lower thoracolumbar junction (D), conus medullaris (E), and nerve roots (F, G). The images show marked enhancement of the spinal nerve roots (arrows in A through F), with expansion of the nerve roots seen as they exit through the neural foramina (asterisks in F and G).
