The effects of section angle and thickness on the measurement of spinal canal diameter by computed tomography (CT) were tested. A phantom of three spinal canals was constructed of three Lucite rods of different diameters, each covered with 1.8-mm-thick Teflon. A second phantom was constructed of two Lucite rods of the same diameter covered with 1.8- and 8.8… CONTINUE READING
