In summary, careful evaluation of MR images in a patient with a cervical myelopathy not only will distinguish between a true cord tumor and a cord pseudotumor but often can establish a definitive diagnosis. Careful attention to the exact location of the abnormality (central vs. peripheral) on axial images is often the key observation. In conclusion, I wish to thank the Cervical Spinal Research Society and in particular your president, Chris Ullrich, for the opportunity to present this keynote address.
