A patient with spondylodiscitis at L2–3 (Klebsiella pneumoniae, follow-up interval 40 days). T2-weighted (left), T1-weighted (middle), and contrast-enhanced fat suppressed T1-weighted images (right) of the spine. Comparing contrast-enhanced fat suppressed T1-weighted sagittal (upper) and axial (lower) images of baseline (a) and follow-up (b), bone (arrow heads), soft tissue (arrows), and disc findings all worsened. CRP was resolving (130.9 to 57.5 mg/L [0.0–5.0]) and ESR was worsen (52 to 68 mm/hr. [0–15]) at baseline and follow-up, respectively
