"The way the book and chapters are set up allows one to review images of many common and uncommon spinal disorders…The straightforward nature of the book with the inclusion of basic information and well labeled and well described images would make this a useful reference for clinicians and trainees in radiology/neuroradiology." - AJNR Blog
"The authors' goal is to provide a readily accessible reference book of the specific, state-of-the-art diagnostic spine imaging and interpretation knowledge that practitioners need. The book is divided into two major sections: spinal anatomy, which includes normal CT and MR images of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine; and clinical disorders, where each chapter is introduced by an actual patient case. Over 1,400 high-quality radiographic images and appropriate references complement the discussions. The book includes an access code for a website with an online version of the full text and a complete image bank.The wealth of relevant, practical, anatomical, clinical, and imaging information makes this a useful reference for clinical practice." - Richard Tupler, MD, Ochsner Clinic Foundation -(Doody 4 star rating)
