Objective: Results of a prospective study investigating cervical spinal cord recovery in patients with degenerative stenosis and cord compression using high-resolution [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET). Methods: 16 patients with monosegmental spondylotic stenosis[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
