Ccg in posttraumatic cephalo-cervicaly injured patients compared to functional mri findings

Abstract

145 cases of cephalo-cervicaly injured patients were intensively investigated and evaluated by means of a modern neurootometric test battery. In addition every patient was seen by a neuro-radiologist with a special newly developed method of funtional MRI scanning, the so-called dynamic functional MRI of the Head, especially of the cranio-cervical junction (head sockle joint) . Abnormalities of the subarachnoidal space, A. vertebralis and Ligg. Alaria were looked for in this clinical study.
Statistical evaluations allowed to draw conclusions from the interrelations between morphological lesions and subjective complaints as well as objective functional aberrations within the nerootological pathways.
For instance 100 % of the sample suffered from a posttraumatic vertigo and 84,7 % from tinnitus due to whiplash.
88 % of this sample exhibit radiologically visible disturbances within the sockle joint (c0-c1-c2) of the neck.
Applying for instance an objective and quantitative neurootometric analysis of the head and body movement patterns by ultrasound computer CCG we find a high correlation of p <0,05 for the standing as well as for the stepping CCG related to the MRI pathology. In total we had pathological findings in 62,5 % of the standing CCG and in 89,6 % of the stepping CCG.
