Abstract

Computed tomography and myelography have long been used for diagnosing the effects of degenerative diseases of the cervical spine. Despite the continuous improvement of magnetic resonance scanning for this purpose, computed tomography techniques may provide an excellent screen for disc herniation and spinal stenosis. Computed tomography myelography is still considered by some workers to be the gold standard for demonstrating the soft tissue and bony changed that result in nerve root and spinal cord compression syndromes.
