• If your neurosurgery practice handles myelography procedures, you probably know that there's a science to correctly coding myelographies. (supercoder.com)
  • At our ACR-accredited Doctors Park location in Greenville, we use CT Myelography to detect abnormalities including disk herniation, spinal stenosis, infection, inflammation, spinal lesions and even tumors. (easternrad.com)
  • Before CT scans and MRI scans were introduced, it was myelography that was used to study any abnormalities in the spinal cord. (targetwoman.com)
  • MRI has replaced myelography for evaluation of intraspinal abnormalities, but CT myelography is still done when MRI is unavailable. (merckmanuals.com)
  • Conventional and dynamic CT myelography failed to localize the dural tear because of rapid equilibration of myelographic contrast between the thecal sac and the extradural collection. (ajnr.org)
  • Myelography is difficult to perform, because it is not easy to retain the contrast medium in the cervical subarachnoid space when the neck is flexed. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • CT myelography may increase your risk for a headache, neck or back pain, nausea, or vomiting. (drugs.com)
  • The division also performs a variety of image-guided procedures, including fluoroscopic (x-ray)-guided lumbar puncture, myelography (CT and MRI), CT-guided blood patches for cerebrospinal leak, and ultrasound- and CT-guided head and neck biopsies. (emoryhealthcare.org)
  • At the height of the popularity of oil myelography about 450,000 myelograms were being performed in the United States on a yearly basis (at least an equal number elsewhere in the world). (burtonreport.com)
  • At hospital A, seizure threshold-lowering medications are discontinued before myelography, and prophylactic diazepam is given for all cervical myelograms. (ajnr.org)
  • Rarely, myelography results in inflammation of the arachnoid membranes around the spinal nerves (arachnoiditis), which may cause chronic pain and paresthesias in the lower back and extremities. (merckmanuals.com)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • CONCLUSIONS: CT is a more sensitive imaging technique than myelography for localizing disc extrusions when compared to a reference standard of CT myelography. (avmi.net)
  • The authors describe seven cases of cervical spondylosis in which small high-density areas were detected in the spinal cord on delayed computerized tomographic (CT) myelography. (thejns.org)
  • A prospective comparison was made of standard two-dimensional MRI sequences, at both high and midfield strength, with CT myelography in 23 patients with cervical spondylosis. (worktribe.com)
  • Determining CM position is considered of great clinical importance in diagnosis of tethered cord syndrome, spinal anesthesia, myelography and lumber punctures (Demiryurek et al. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • After a diagnosis has been made, CT myelography is indicated for identifying the site of CSF leakage. (cedars-sinai.edu)
  • Ninety brachial plexus lesions have been examined by myelography and the results classified into six types. (semanticscholar.org)
  • Depending on the reviewer, two to four dogs had their lesions classified as dynamic on myelography but static on MR images. (avmi.net)
  • To investigate the sensitivity of MRI of the spine compared with CT myelography (CTM) in detecting CSF leaks. (neurology.org)
  • 1) Sensitivity of MRI spine compared to CT myelography in orthostatic headache with CSF leak and 2) Topic of the month: Area of functional symptoms and conversion disorder. (aan.com)
  • In the second segment Dr. Heather Harle interviews Dr. Amaal Starling about her paper on sensitivity of MRI spine compared to CT myelography in orthostatic headache with CSF leak. (aan.com)
  • There was room for improvement in the clinical information supplied on the myelography request form. (bmj.com)
  • Animals requiring surgery immediately following myelography were excluded from the study. (edu.au)
  • 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)
  • Current medical world uses myelography only for complicated revision spine surgeries and for patients who have metal plates or screws in their spine. (targetwoman.com)
  • The authors describe a technique, using metrizamide (Amipaque), which makes it possible to perform myelography under these circumstances. (uab.edu)
  • The results of this study indicated that, although myelography can identify the location of the lesion in most patients, MR imaging appears to be more accurate in predicting the site, severity, and nature of the spinal cord compression. (avmi.net)
