Abstract: A series of 82 patients presenting with syringohydromyelia and confirmed at operation were studied by conventional radiological techniques and computed tomography (CT). Cord collapse was demonstrated in 71% of the patients with wide bony canals and only 11% of patients with normal bony canals. It was most reliably shown with high resolution CT. Intrathecal CT metrizamide myelography (CTMM) failed to demonstrated contrast percolation into many cavities shown in the plain scans. Obliteration of the subarachnoid space at C1-2 levels appreciated in the plain scans strongly indicated coexisting tonsillar herniation, making CTMM unnecessary. In almost all patients, CTMM was found to be non-contributory if the high resolution plain CT scan failed to reveal cord cavitation.
