Cervicogenic headache. Radiological investigations concerning head/neck.
Fredriksen TA, Fougner R, Tangerud A, Sjaastad O
Eleven patients with cervicogenic headache took part in a radiological diagnostic workup related to the head and neck. All the patients were female with a mean age of 43 years (range 25-59) at the onset of the study. Cerebral and cervical computer tomography as well as standard X-ray of the spine were carried out in all patients. Six patients underwent cerebral angiography and six cervical myelography. The different investigations showed no typical characteristic pathology in the group. No indication of a common therapeutic approach in this group of patients could therefore be derived from these investigations.
