Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Richard Tupler, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This subspecialty radiology book describes the imaging appearance of the major conditions that cause back pain, including both common and uncommon disorders.
Purpose: 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.
Audience: It is appropriate for any physician who regularly deals with diagnostic imaging of spinal disorders, from the resident to clinician level.
Features: 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. The case studies illustrate the imaging presentation of back pain, provide a detailed description of the disorder, and relevant clinical and pathological information. The book also provides appropriate differential diagnostic considerations as well as a brief discussion of treatment options for each disorder. 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.
Assessment: The wealth of relevant, practical, anatomical, clinical, and imaging information makes this a useful reference for clinical practice.
From the Publisher
