  Hi, if ur Dr is a chiari specialist they will most likely want those if u have not had them done already.

U need to rule out not only a syrinx in the thoracic and lumbar spine, but disk issues and tethered cord...and neuro testing to see if u possibly have ehlers-danlos.

  Again, a chiari specialist will want these...so u should not have to ask, but if it is not mentioned u may want to ask y.

Thanks for posting this question, gaggirl! And for answering, Selma!!
I was just thinking the same things. I will make sure to bring this up to my NS if he doesn't do it himself.
