Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Cervical Spine and Spinal Cord

  • Ch. G. Ullrich


This report subjectively summarizes more than 300 magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations of the cervical spine performed with a 0.15 Tesla resistive magnet imaging system (Technicare) installed at the Charlotte Memorial Hospital, Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S.A. Since the initial patient study in March, 1983, advances in system design, including a recently available surface coil, have considerably improved image quality. Current applications include:


Spinal Cord Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Cervical Spine Disc Herniation Spinal Cord Compression
