In brief: ASIA Exam

Spinal cord injuries are graded using a scale called the asia score.
This looks at strength, sensation and function of the bowel and bladder. Mri imaging is the best to try to localize a pathologic level of a spinal cord injury. Sep is another type of test than can help find injuries as well.
