Dorsal and ventral horn atrophy is associated with clinical outcome after spinal cord injury

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To investigate whether gray matter pathology above the level of injury, alongside white matter changes, also contributes to sensorimotor impairments after spinal cord injury. METHODS A 3T MRI protocol was acquired in 17 tetraplegic patients and 21 controls. A sagittal T2-weighted sequence was used to characterize lesion severity. At the C2-3… (More)
