Spinal Imaging: Critical Topics for Clinical Practice is a concise review of
commonly used MRI sequences for spinal imaging and new sequences related to
the assessment of spinal CSF flow, with their clinical applications. The book
is edited by Mauricio Castillo, Chief of the Division of Neuroradiology at the
University of North Carolina.
Divided into twelve chapters, the book begins with a chapter on new sequences for spinal MRI. Subsequent chapters cover imaging of craniospinal disorders, trauma to the spine and spinal cord, differentiation of benign versus malignant vertebral collapse, imaging of spinal tumours and vertebral augmentation procedures. The concluding chapters provide information on other non-vascular spinal interventions, and a concise review of post-operative imaging.
Spinal Imaging: Critical Topics for Clinical Practice provides up to date guidance on MR neurographic techniques and image findings related to spinal tumours, and also details common and unusual MRI findings in patients with degenerative spine disease, and congenital spine conditions.
