which is the better way to determine the degree of cervical stenosis: mri or ct scan? where does a contrast dye fit in either approach?

Pluses and minuses: A ct myleogram gives great bony detail but is invasive, contrast placed in thecal sac MRI will give equivalent information without risk of intrathecal contrast and additional information about the state of spinal cord increased signal intensity within the cord bad sign.
