Abstract

Spine Imaging uses a classic, case approach to provide multimodality imaging studies and management guidance of spine pathologies for the consulting radiologist as well as the neurologist, orthopedist, or emergency clinician diagnosing and managing spinal patients. Eighty cases are organized into sections by pathological process and include a clinical description followed by discussion on radiological findings, clinical management, and a summary of key points. An additional section on imaging signs closes the volume. Cases address which image findings are clinically significant and which are not, how to understand the severity of an injury, and when additional advanced imaging is needed, making Spine Imaging an essential resource for board and recertification examination preparation.
