Abstract

Computed tomography of the spinal cord was a natural development of total body scanning. Much time and effort was spent in order to visualize the spinal cord and the various conditions affecting it. This was achieved by using an EMI CT5005 scanner and a series of step by step modifications and improvements to obtain a very high degree of resolution. The large variety of intraspinal lesions seen at the Montreal Neurological Hospital allowed us, by selecting appropriate cases, to determine the value of CT of the spinal cord.
