  • Tomographic Myelography
  • 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)
  • abnormality
  • 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)
  • nerve
  • Suffice it to point out that starting in the 1940's clinicians and medical publications of the period began to attempt to sound the alarm and identify the association of oil myelography with severe nerve scarring and the other associated adverse clinical sequela. (burtonreport.com)
  • 7 Presurgical evaluation MRI has become the single most useful imaging test for evaluation of patients with back pain and is accepted as the gold standard, however myelography is needed in cases where the exact topograhic correlation of the spinal nerve roots to the bony or discogenic structures has to be verified preoperatively.

  • largely
  • Today, myelography has largely been replaced by the use of MRI scans, although the technique is still sometimes used under certain circumstances - though now usually in conjunction with CT rather than X-ray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)
  • patients
  • This led to extensive litigation around the world since the substance was administered to millions of myelography patients over the course of more than three decades. (wikipedia.org)
  • Digital subtraction myelography is able to precisely localize the dural puncture site in patients with a post-dural puncture headache and an extensive extradural CSF collection, and it may rarely detect a CSF-venous fistula in such patients without an extradural CSF collection. (thejns.org)
  • Only 16 of the patients with suspected cord disease had visual evoked responses performed before myelography. (bmj.com)
  • technique
  • The technique of myelography was born when the ventricular system of the brain was accidentally visualized on a post-traumatic skull x-ray performed by Luckett in 1913. (burtonreport.com)
  • choice
  • The point has been occasionally made that American clinicians had no choice but to use iophendylate for myelography from the 1940s to the 1980s. (burtonreport.com)
