Predictive Outcomes using Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy

ID Number 15-1231

Principal Investigator(s)
John Caridi

Department(s) or Division(s)
Neurosurgery

Description

The purpose of this study is to determine the role of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in the diagnosis and treatment of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM).  We are looking to enroll 30 patients undergoing cervical spinal surgery with CSM and 30 patients undergoing cervical spinal surgery with radiculopathy. Patients will complete a DTI MRI at baseline and 6 months after their surgery. Patients will be recruited from the Neurosurgery department at Mount Sinai.
