Patologie tumorali endocanalari

SPINAL TUMORS

Uncommon lesions

Classification based on their location

EXTRADURAL (60% of all spinal tumors)

INTRAMEDULLARY(5%-10% of all spinal tumors)

Metastasis

Extension of primary bone tumors

INTRADURAL-EXTRAMEDULLARY (30% of all spinal tumors)

gliomas

Meningiomas and neurinoma

Summary

Three general characteristics:

1)they tend to enlarge the cord either focally or diffusely

2) on T2-w they produce high signal intensity

3) They enhance
