Abstract: Myelography was evaluated in 12 domestic pigeons (Columba livia) by injecting an iodinated contrast medium (iohexol) at the atlanto-occipital space into the cerebellomedullary cistern.
The site of injection was the atlanto-occipital space overlying the cerebellomedullary cistern (Fig 2).
Injection of iohexol into the cerebellomedullary cistern, which communicates with the subarachnoid space, was successful on the first attempt in 11 of the 12 pigeons.
