Intermediate findings were associated with lesser rates of accuracy. CT myelography has been shown to have accuracy ranging from 70% to 95% [12,17–20]. Assessing the C8 and T1 roots is more difficult with CT myelography, because of the increasing obliquity of the more caudal spinal nerves and signal artifact arising in short, stout necks [21]. Using myelography in combination with CT myelography is likely to be more accurate. MRI is considered less accurate than CT myelography for detecting nerve root avulsion [12,21,22], although MRI is noninvasive and visualizes the extraforaminal plexus [23].

This patient had severe triceps weakness. Biopsy showed perineurinoma involving the posterior cord and radial nerve. contrast, but the phase artifacts particular to that sequence and the lack of fat suppression currently limit its application on a routine basis (see Fig. 7). Images should be obtained in axial, sagittal, and coronal planes with both T1 and fat-suppressed T2 weighting. The authors offset images to the side of interest to optimize spatial resolution, with the exception of the axial plane when a bilateral examination is requested.
