Question

scenario: A doctor suspects that Mr. D is having multiple nerve transmission problems as manifested by his

patient's symptoms. Preliminary neurological tests indicate that he has functional deficits, therefore further testing is ordered. The CT scan and MRI reveal that a tumor is blocking specific thoracic areas left dorsal horn and left dorsal column corresponding to vertebral levels of T1-T2. You may refer to a dermatome map to visualize the level of injury.


Draw and fully label a x-s of the spinal cord at levels T1-T2. Then, mark with "X" and "Y" to indicate the location of the 2 blocked areas.
