About this book

Introduction

Radiology Illustrated: Spine is an up-to-date, superbly illustrated reference in the style of a teaching file that has been designed specifically to be of value in clinical practice. Common, critical, and rare but distinctive spinal disorders are described succinctly with the aid of images highlighting important features and informative schematic illustrations. The first part of the book, on common spinal disorders, is for radiology residents and other clinicians who are embarking on the interpretation of spinal images. A range of key disorders are then presented, including infectious spondylitis, cervical trauma, spinal cord disorders, spinal tumors, congenital disorders, uncommon degenerative disorders, inflammatory arthritides, and vascular malformations. The third part is devoted to rare but clinically significant spinal disorders with characteristic imaging features, and the book closes by presenting practical tips that will assist in the interpretation of confusing cases.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is an invaluable book for anyone who looks at spine MRI as part of their daily working routine. … The descriptions are narrated in such a manner that it is easy to follow the topic and remember key facts. … I would highly recommend it as a useful resource, particularly for the general radiologist with an interest in spinal imaging radiology fellows and senior trainees with interest in MSK imaging and spinal surgeons.” (Rafeh Khan and Asif Saifuddin, RAD Magazine, February, 2015)

“This is an excellent, detailed map, atlas, and text describing benign, musculoskeletal pathologies from aging and slipped discs. CT, MRI, line drawings of the different lesions also includes rare and more common spine tumors, trauma, etc. This is a radiographic goldmine for radiologists, orthopaedic/rehab, and neurosurgeons. It is also a good reference for fellows and students in training. It is easy to follow and understand at both the introductory and advanced levels.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, May, 2014)
