Evaluation of thoracic spinal cord motion using dynamic MRI.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The aim of study was to assess the thoracic spinal cord motion during normal breathing using dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI). We found that the mean motion range at different thoracic levels is typically within 0.5mm. The good stability makes this an excellent position for stereotactic radiotherapy (SBRT).
