The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the use of 3D ZTE imaging of the cervical spine to assess osseous neural foraminal stenosis and directly compare it to CT. Other objectives will include evaluation of ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament, ossification of disc herniations, and comparison of ZTE derived imaging of pedicle morphology to the current reformats provided by CT. The ability to image metallic hardware with ZTE will also be assessed, if present.
