About this book

This is a richly illustrated and comprehensive textbook on the imaging of frequently encountered spinal disorders. Degenerative disease, spinal trauma, spinal tumors and the postoperative spine are addressed in detail. In addition, there are individual chapters on embryology, the pediatric spine, biomechanics, scoliosis, bone marrow disorders, infections, spondyloarthropathies and imaging of the sacrum. All imaging modalities are considered, including plain film, multidetector CT and MRI. The book is intended for daily use in any practice that engages in spinal imaging, and will assist both in film interpretation and in image acquisition. Its logical structure and extensive, accurate index are specifically designed to ensure ease of use.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"A comprehensive textbook overview of diagnostic spinal imaging, replete with many illustrations and tables … . appropriate for the radiologist in training, as well as the depth and breadth of coverage valued in a day-to-day reference for the practicing radiologist. It will presumably be kept close by the PACS station by its owners. … I also believe that neurosurgeons, neurologists, and rheumatologists will find the quality of the discussions and illustrations of spinal disease most useful as well." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, January, 2008)

"The volume is divided into 10 general topic areas. These are congenital malformations, pediatric spine, spinal biomechanics, degenerative disease, trauma, the postoperative spine, tumors, bone marrow disorders, infection and inflammation, and the sacrum. … All the same, this is a well-written, well-illustrated text that includes information … in one volume that otherwise would be dispersed in various texts. … I congratulate the authors and editors on a fine effort that will be a welcome addition for specialists in spine imaging." (David S. Martin, Radiology, Vol. 249 (1), October, 2008)
