Two questions regarding findings on CT C-spine
1. Can any of the following CT findings be caused by a traumatic SCI?
a. Hypertrophy of the uncovertebral joints causing encroachment of the neural foramina at multiple levels.
b. Moderate to severe spine canal stenosis at C5-C6 level.
c. Discrete component of rotatory subluxation between C1 and C2.
2. Can any of the above findings cause paralysis? Hello Suzanne,
Can you give me more details of the case. How old is the patient, when did the trauma occur, and is there old trauma too.
Where is this paralysis and how severe is it? Giving me as much detail as you can will enable to give me a more relevant reply to your questions.
