    Purpose: Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is a common spinal cord disorder in the elderly. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has been shown to be of great value for evaluating the microstructure of nerve tracts in the spinal cord. Currently, the quantitative assessment of the degeneration on...

    Background: In multiple sclerosis (MS), pathological studies have identified substantial demyelination and neuronal loss in the spinal cord grey matter (GM). However, there has been limited in vivo investigation of cord GM abnormalities and their possible functional effects using MRI combined...
