Original Abstract

The relationship between teh area of the compressed spinal cord and the degree of clinical affliction in spondylogenic cervical myelopathy is controversial. The authors describe also a new method of assesment of the transverse area of the spinal cord by magnetic resonance. The images were processed by automatic analysis. In the first stage they were scanned and subsequently segmentation of the gray images was made according to criteria of brightness tolerance. The result of the analysis is the assesment of the basic gemetrical paramemeters of the image of the spinal chord.
