    MRI vs. implant

    Dr.Young/nurses,
    Is there an alternate way to investigate the possibility of, say, a syrinx if an MRI is not possible due to the presence of an implant? Will CT scan work?

    A CT scan with contrast enhancement can show syrinxes. It is not as clear as with an MRI and contrast material may have some allergic consequences. Wise.
