The use of water-soluble contrast media for the thoracic myelography has become possible with the introduction of Metrizamide (Amipaque). A modification of the technique used with oily contrast media results in excellent demonstration of detail of intraspinal structures and of pathological changes. The medium is well tolerated and does not cause irritation of the spinal cord; the results must be regarded as excellent.
