Has anyone had better images taken of spinal stenosis or osteophytes done with ct with dye vs mri. I just recently had a ct arteriogram of my neck to check the vertebral arteries, that seems to show the spine and disc in some of the pictures as well. To me it looks like the disc has some broken fragments or something unusual. The report was only commenting on the vertebral arteries so there was no mention of any other areas investigated. When I asked the neurologist about it he said that they were only looking at the arteries and he never looked at the film of it, he just read the report. I am not sure if I am looking at the correct things but it sure looks like the same anatomy you see in mri's.
