Stroke, also termed cerebral infarction, results in neurodegeneration and neuroinflammation in the brain at area of the infarct and peri-infarct regions. Recent research has shown involvement of alternate motor pathways of the spinal cord in disease progression. Creating optimal techniques to study spinal cord MRI can give way to higher prognostic methods and enhanced treatment modalities in post-stroke patients. Here, we will review current research proposing various spinal cord MRI analysis techniques in different neurological conditions that can be applied to analyzing post-stroke spinal cord.
