Gas myelography performed in the modified two-step technique has proven to be effective in defining the character and extent of intramedullary spinal cord lesions. A classification of four types of spinal cord abnormalities based primarily on the hydrodynamic changes induced during gas myelography assists in determining the need for specific neuroradiological and surgical procedures. The comparative value of other myelographic and pneumoencephalographic techniques is discussed.
