Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is a commonly encountered condition often diagnosed on screening examination. Underlying, asymptomatic neural axis abnormalities may be present at the time of diagnosis. At certain institutions, total spine MRI is obtained preoperatively to identify these abnormalities. We provide a framework for the radiologist to follow while interpreting these studies. In part 1, we discuss Arnold Chiari malformations, syringomyelia, and the tethered cord. In part 2, we focus on spinal cord tumors, dysraphisms, to include diastematomyelia, and vertebral anomalies. Copyright © 2024 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
