New Factsheet: Example Medical Report for CT Myelogram

Standard

Our latest CSFleak.info factsheet comprises an example of a medical report for CT Myelography and epidural blood patch carried out at Duke University Hospital by Dr Linda Leithe-Gray.

The patient is a UK national who travelled to the United States for investigatory procedures not commonly available on the NHS , yet shown through research to return a comparably high level of success in locating the site of CSF leak in comparison to Radionuclide Cisternography and conventional MRI.

It is hoped that this report, which outlines the specific procedures used regularly and successfully at Duke University Hospital, may inform and support doctors in their diagnosis and treatment of CSF Leaks in the UK. Our thanks and gratitude goes to the patient for allowing us to publish this information for the benefit of others.
