Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy (CSM) is a chronic progressive disorder of spinal cord with a relatively ill-defined onset of pathogenesis. A series of state-of-art quantitative and functional MR imaging techniques has been proposed aiming to find out specific indicators in prediction and diagnosis of CSM at early phase, but lack of sufficient evidences. Spinal cord blood supply change was recognized as one of the crucial pathophysiological process in CSM. Thus, this study investigated the potential of pre-operative blood supply condition measured by DSC MRI with a non-parametric model in prediction of post-operative prognosis for patients with CSM.
