Abstract

Imaging studies in eight patients with surgically-confirmed spinal arachnoid cysts were analyzed retrospectively. All patients had preoperative MRI of the spine and seven preoperative myelography with postmyelographic CT. In all cases the correct diagnosis could be made preoperatively on the basis solely of MRI. The diagnosis could also be established from myelography and postmyelographic CT in six of the seven cases. In one case myelography and CT simply demonstrated an intradural extramedullary mass.
