Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy (CSM) is a progressive central-nervous degenerative disease caused by vertebral volume abnormalities. A certain proportion of postoperative patients suffered the fluctuation of symptoms after spinal canal decompression. Spinal cord blood supply change was reported as one of the crucial pathophysiological process in CSM. MR DTI has been verified as a relative mature technique in assessing neuro-impairment. In this study, we investigate the relationship between spinal cord blood perfusion and microstructure deficit using MR DSC and DTI technique respectively, and find a certain correlation between DSC and DTI metrics.
