Conference paper


Several dates stand out as regards CT semiology of syringomyela : in 1975 Di Chiro demonstrated a spontaneously visible cyst ; in 1978 Forbes and Isherwood demonstrated penetration of metrizamide in the cyst (one case out of twenty). In this same year, Aubin, Vignaud and coll. showed the Interest of deferred CTs for studying progressive penetration of metrizamide into the cyst.
