Enhanced digital markings are not uncommon under the age of 30 but may indicate long-standing raised intracranial pressure if present over the whole vault. Plain X-rays of the spine These are useful preliminary investigations for patients presenting with spinal pain. Particular note should be taken of: • vertebral alignment • presence of degenerative disease with narrowing of the neural foramina and spinal canal Computerized tomography scanning Computerized tomography (CT) scanning was introduced in the 1970s and at that time revolutionized the radiological investigation of neurological disease.

3. The three major herniations of the brain are described as: 1 Transtentorial. 2 Foramen magnum. 3 Subfalcine. Transtentorial herniation involves displacement of the brain and herniation of the uncus of the temporal lobe through the tentorial hiatus, causing compression of the 3rd cranial nerve and midbrain. The 3rd cranial nerve is affected, initially on the ipsilateral side, and in most cases compression of the pyramidal tracts in the crus cerebri causes contralateral hemiparesis. However, lateral displacement of the brainstem may result in the opposite crus cerebri being compressed against the sharp rigid tentorial edge, indenting the crus (Kernohan’s notch), and causing an ipsilateral hemiparesis.

18 unique for each patient, and it remains stable over time. Serological investigations for neurosyphilis should be performed on the CSF if suspected. CHAPTER 2 • evidence of metastatic tumour with erosion or sclerosis of the vertebral body, pedicles or lamina • enlargement of a neural foramen indicating a spinal schwannoma • congenital abnormalities such as spina bifida. Radiological investigations The major radiological investigations are: • plain X-rays • CT scan • cerebral angiography • myelography • MRI.
