Even following careful consideration of the clinical and neuroradiologic examination, it is not possible to be certain that the laminectomy is of sufficient length to expose the entirety of the solid component of the neoplasm. -vis the bone removal. Therefore, after laminectomy is carried out, the wound is filled with saline and the head of the transducer probe is placed into gentle contact with the dura. Utilizing this technique, the spinal cord is viewed in both sagittal and transverse sections.

The rostral and caudal limits of the tumor, as well as the presence or absence of associated cysts are immediately obvious (Fig. I). Occasionally, an echogenic tumor provides a striking ultrasound image though, most commonly, the solid component of the neoplasm is only manifest as a widened spinal cord. If the laminectomy is not sufficiently long to expose the entirety of the solid component of the neoplasm it is lengthened, segment-by-segment, until the ultrasound discloses that the entire tumor mass is exposed.
