Abstract

Optimal planning of the diagnostic procedure is essential for an exact diagnosis and for the subsequent neurosurgical intervention in dysraphic myelodysplasias. A definitive diagnosis of the existing lesion and its ventral, dorsal and intraspinal extent is the least required of the imaging diagnostician. Previously, the invasive methods of myelography and CT-myelography produced the greatest possible yield of information (3, 4, 5).
