• Included dogs were referred to one of four clinics, had acute mono/paraparesis or paraplegia, had low field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and/or computed tomographic myelography, and were diagnosed with thoracolumbar intradural disc herniation during surgery. (avmi.net)
  • By using computed tomographic myelography (CTM) for the remaining three dogs, an intradural extramedullary mass surrounded by an accumulation of contrast medium was observed and confirmed during surgery. (avmi.net)
  • The purpose of this study was to document the most commonly prescribed seizure threshold-lowering medications in patients undergoing myelography and determine whether withholding such medications decreases the incidence of seizures. (ajnr.org)
  • Continuing seizure threshold-lowering medications during myelography does not increase the risk of seizures. (ajnr.org)
  • Objective - To investigate the frequency of seizures associated with acepromazine administration when used as a premedicant with methadone for dogs undergoing myelography. (edu.au)
  • Conclusions - The administration of acepromazine combined with methadone as a premedicant used with propofol and isoflurane anesthesia did not significantly increase the frequency of seizures following myelography compared to dogs who received methadone alone. (edu.au)
  • DR 800's robust and reliable solution can handle a full range of radiography (including static exams and tilting exams), fluoroscopy exams (including barium meals, swallows and enemas, arthrograms and cysto-urethrograms, myelography and catheter placement, etc.), as well as tomosynthesis exams, concluded the company. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Myelography, is an invasive diagnostic test in which a substance, radio-opaque on x-ray, is placed in the subarachnoid space for diagnostic purposes. (burtonreport.com)
  • After recovery from the anesthesia, myelography was performed by lumbar subarachnoid injection of Conray by variations in amount of Conray and rate of injection under the control of a fluoroscope. (koreamed.org)
  • Myelography is an imaging examination that involves the introduction of a spinal needle into the spinal canal and the injection of contrast material in the space around the spinal cord (the subarachnoid space) and nerve roots using a real-time form of x-ray called fluoroscopy. (premierrad.com)
  • Second, any possible abnormality seen on MR myelography prompts a re-evaluation of the relevant axial and sagittal sequences and produces an increased rate of detection of foraminal compression as a result of this review process. (docplayer.net)
  • While survey vertebral column radiographs do not allow visualization of the spinal cord or the meninges, Myelography with the use of radiographs as described above, allows visualization of the outline of the spinal cord. (vcahospitals.com)
  • Oblique MR myelography reveals extrinsic deformity of lateral recess of the thecal sac margin due to posterolateral disk herniation. (docplayer.net)
  • Far lateral disk herniation, which does not affect the thecal sac, cannot be detected on MR myelography. (docplayer.net)
  • Sensitivity of CT and myelography was compared to CT myelography for lateral, longitudinal, and combined localization. (avmi.net)
  • There was room for improvement in the clinical information supplied on the myelography request form. (bmj.com)
  • Among patients with spontaneous spinal CSF leaks, digital subtraction myelography (DSM) can localize the exact site of the leak when an extradural CSF collection is present, and it can also demonstrate CSF-venous fistulas in those without an extradural CSF collection. (thejns.org)
  • Spinal arthritis can develop bone spurs that may press against the nerves and cause pain, myelography can help identify if surgery is required and can also help spot if the spinal canal is narrowed. (targetwoman.com)
  • Animals requiring surgery immediately following myelography were excluded from the study. (edu.au)
  • CT myelography may increase your risk for a headache, neck or back pain, nausea, or vomiting. (drugs.com)
  • Today, myelography has largely been replaced by the use of MRI scans, although the technique is still sometimes used under certain circumstances - though now usually in conjunction with CT rather than X-ray projections. (wikipedia.org)
  • Screening for and withholding seizure threshold-lowering medications are not indicated for routine myelography. (ajnr.org)
  • There are some drugs that should be stopped before myelography, including blood thinners, anti-depressants and anti-psychotic medications. (semc.org)
