  • PRIMARY OBJECTIVE Chiari malformation is defined as herniation of the cerebellar tonsils through the foramen magnum, also known as cerebellar tonsillar ectopia (CTE. [...] Key MethodSTUDY DESIGN Case-control. METHODS AND PROCEDURES Cervical MRI scans for 1200 neck pain patients were reviewed; 600 trauma (cases) and 600 non-trauma (controls). Half of the groups were scanned in a recumbent position and half were scanned in an upright position.Expand Abstract
