Use of novel quantitative imaging guidelines for the development of a comprehensive imaging scale for cervical spondylotic myelopathy: A prospective pilot study

Project: Research project

Description

The specific aim of this study is to evaluate and create a new MR imaging scale to be used for the diagnosis and prediction of response to surgical management in CSM patients. It is our hypothesis that the simultaneous use of newly developed, standardized imaging criteria alongside current clinical scores will provide immediate clinical utility and prove instrumental in streamlining clinical decision making and improving patient outcomes amongst patients with CSM.
