MR Imaging of Neonatal Spinal Dysraphia: What to Consider?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The development of the spinal canal and its contents is highly complex and involves multiple programmed anatomic and functional developmental and maturational processes. Correct and detailed knowledge about spinal malformations is essential to understand and recognize these lesions early (preferably prenatally) to counsel parents during pregnancy, to plan possible intrauterine treatments, and to make decisions about the mode of delivery and the immediate postnatal treatment. This article discusses the imaging findings of the most frequently encountered neonatal spinal malformations and correlates these findings with the relevant embryologic processes. The presented classification is based on a correlation of clinical, neuroradiologic, and embryologic data.
