The International Standards for Neurological Classification of Spinal Cord Injury (ISNCSCI) published by ASIA and continuously maintained by the International Standards Committee of ASIA and the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) represents the gold standard assessment for documentation of the level and severity of a spinal cord injury (SCI).

Since its first introduction, the ISNCSCI has undergone several revisions with its newest eighth edition released at this year?s ASIA annual meeting in Honolulu. This 2019 revision is based not only upon comments, questions, and suggestions from the international SCI community, clinicians and researchers, but also takes recently available evidence and structured feedback from ISNCSCI training courses into account.
