Examination of epidural tumors of the spinal canal. Comparative study with magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography and tomo-myelography.

Abstract

To delimit the vertical extension of epidural tumors of the spinal canal, tomo-myelography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are the most accurate examinations, MRI appearing to us to be even superior to tomo-myelography. To evaluate precisely the bone extension of tumor growth as compared with the epidural lesions, computed tomography (CT) is more accurate than the other methods mentioned. The choice between these three techniques is of great importance as an aid in selection the best therapeutic method in each particular case.
