The aim of this study was to test the sensitivity and specificity of diffusion-weighted MRI for the detection of acute spinal cord injury. Forty female New Zealand white rabbits were randomly divided into four groups: the mild, moderate and severe injury groups, and the control (sham operation) group. Contusion of the spinal cord was induced using a weight-drop impactor. All animals were imaged using T1-weighted, T2-weighted, and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) sequences at 30 minutes, 6 hours… CONTINUE READING
