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. Each pigeon was monitored after the myelography procedure for seizures, hyperthermia, and prolonged recovery from anesthesia; postmyelographic complications were not observed. Myelograms obtained are briefly described. The quality of the myelograms is considered acceptable in this species, and myelography was found to be cost effective with potential application to avian practice.
