Overview

Professor Ramsey undertook a massive project and brought it to a magnificent conclusion. The MR images are of high quality and [the] well-written commentary is easy to understand. Well worth the investment... -Radiologic Technology

I strongly recommend this book to individuals who are required to interpret MRIs of the vertebral column and the spinal cord... great practical use to clinicians... very absorbing; it was easy to read an entire section in one sitting. -The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery

The author has met her purpose in producing a user-friendly spinal imaging atlas that will aid clinicians caring for patients with spine disease. -Radiology

Containing nearly 1,000 illustrations and a broad array of case studies, this comprehensive, practical reference simulates an actual clinical setting in which readers view images of a spinal abnormality and then see the correct differential diagnosis.

The book contains hundreds of instructive cases, and is ideal for teaching and self-assessment. Practical and complete, the book offers a broad array of classic and unusual cases for residents and practicing surgeons. This easy-to-use resource is the perfect tool for qualifying and CAQ exam preparation.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

This book comprehensively presents a wide range of cases in spine imaging. All cases stress the "real-life" presentation of a specific clinical problem, beginning with high-quality radiographs and followed by patient history, radiographic findings, differential diagnosis, discussion, and suggestions for further reading.

Reviewer: David A. May, MD (Medical College of Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University)
Description: This is an extensive, thoroughly illustrated textbook of spine imaging with heavy emphasis on MRI. It is organized in a teaching file format.
Purpose: The purpose is to teach spine imaging with emphasis on "real life" presentation of both classic and challenging cases. These are worthy objectives which are met in this book.
Audience: It is written for radiologists at all levels, but especially for residents, fellows, and practicing general radiologists. The author is a well known neuroradiologist.
Features: The text covers all aspects of spinal imaging, with heavy emphasis on MRI. Neoplastic, infectious, and inflammatory conditions are especially well reviewed. It is organized in a case presentation format. Each case is presented as an unknown. Images are presented and discussed, followed by discussion of the differential diagnosis. Cases are not specifically referenced.
Assessment: This outstanding teaching file is sufficiently thorough to serve as a reference. It is especially valuable as a teaching tool for residents preparing for board exams, and for general radiologists who are brushing up on spine MR imaging.

A collection of both classic and challenging cases, formatted to reflect real-life presentations, with sections on normal anatomy, congenital conditions, spinal cord tumors, trauma, metastases, carcinomatosis, inflammation, cervical and thoracic spine, lumbar disc, and miscellaneous cases. Each case begins with a brief clinical presentation, followed by a series of images, and material on radiological findings, diagnosis, and differential diagnosis, with brief discussions of illustrated abnormalities. Practical guidelines to diagnosis and imaging are highlighted in margins. Emphasis is on the need for clinical correlation and relevance. A large format (9.25x12.25<">) allows for life-size presentations of b&w images to simulate the clinical setting at the time of interpretation. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
