BACKGROUND CONTEXT Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a very useful diagnostic test for cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) because it can identify degenerative changes within the spinal cord (SC), disclose the extent, localization, and the kind of SC compression, and help rule out other SC disorders. However, the relationships between changes in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow, cord motion, the extent and severity of spinal canal stenosis, and the development of CSM symptoms are not well… CONTINUE READING
