Neural Foraminal Lesions 2004

Kalina, Peter, M.D., Campeau, Norbert, M.D.

This exhibit aims to illustrate the wide range of lesions which may involve the spinal neural foramina. All imaging modalities will be utilized including plain radiographs, myelography, CT and MRI. Among the entities demonstrated will be metastases, neurofibromas, schwannomas, extension of adjacent neck pathology, extension of adjacent osseous pathology, disk herniations, nerve root sleeve cysts, nerve root avulsion and others. Viewers will hopefully acquire tips to help narrow their differential diagnosis of these entities.
