Conference paper


The rapid development of high quality MR images of the brain and cord as well as an increased understanding of the potential of magnetic resonance in providing both anatomic and physiologic information would indicate that, in the future, MR will be the primary diagnostic technique for imaging the central nervous system. Exceptions to this statement will include evaluation of the traumatized and/ or uncooperative patient, as well as a very small number of patients who are unable to tolerate the claustrophobic atmosphere of an MR imager.
