We have established an imaging protocol in order to characterise the normal ligamentous structures in the craniovertebral junction. Thirty volunteers without a history of car accident or head or neck trauma underwent MR imaging with 2-mm-thick proton-density-weighted sections in three orthogonal planes. The alar ligaments were clearly seen in every case and had three different configurations in cross-section: round, ovoid or wing-like. A broadening from lateral to medial in the coronal plane… CONTINUE READING
