Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) is frequently used to differentiate cerebral lesions. The aim of our study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of DWI and the measurement of the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in noncompressive myelopathy explorations. Thirty-three patients presenting a spinal cord syndrome due to a noncompressive myelopathy underwent spinal cord MRI between September 2005 and November 2008. For each patient, the ADC was calculated in the pathological spinal cord. ADC… CONTINUE READING
