- Comprehensive, up-to-date textbook on the imaging of frequently encountered spinal disorders - Richly illustrated - All imaging modalities considered, e.g. plain film, multidetector CT and MRI - Designed to ensure ease of use, with a logical structure and extensive index
Magnetic resonance imaging has become an increasingly beneficial tool for the radiologic evaluation of complex spine diseases. However, due to the many variables implicit in MR imaging technique, considerable experience and expertise are necessary to diagnose with confidence.This book provides a comprehensive and practical overview of the field, and gives you the information to competently utilize MRI for the diagnosis of diseases of the spine and spinal cord.- More than 1,300 high-quality images help you recognize and distinguish normal findings from pathologic spinal disorders and common MR artifacts- Systematic tables of indications and differential diagnoses summarize each disorder and help you in planning treatment strategies- Problem-solving tips and tricks provide details on various imaging techniques, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of different MRI sequences- Concise chapter summaries provide quick and easy access to the most current MR imaging informationOf great interest to radiologists, neuroradiologists, trauma surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, and neurosurgeons, this extensively illustrated work is an essential diagnostic reference for evaluating spinal disorders.
This book is instrumental to building a bridge between scientists and clinicians in the field of spine imaging by introducing state-of-the-art computational methods in the context of clinical applications. Spine imaging via computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and other radiologic imaging modalities, is essential for noninvasively visualizing and assessing spinal pathology. Computational methods support and enhance the physician’s ability to utilize these imaging techniques for diagnosis, non-invasive treatment, and intervention in clinical practice. Chapters cover a broad range of topics encompassing radiological imaging modalities, clinical imaging applications for common spine diseases, image processing, computer-aided diagnosis, quantitative analysis, data reconstruction and visualization, statistical modeling, image-guided spine intervention, and robotic surgery. This volume serves a broad audience as contributions were written by both clinicians and researchers, which reflects the intended readership as well, being a potentially comprehensive book for all spine related clinicians, technicians, scientists, and graduate students.
This work presents guidance on spine diagnostic imaging. It provides details for each diagnosis, representative images, case data, and current references.
Established as the leading textbook on imaging diagnosis of brain and spine disorders, Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain and Spine is now in its Fourth Edition. This thoroughly updated two-volume reference delivers cutting-edge information on nearly every aspect of clinical neuroradiology. Expert neuroradiologists, innovative renowned MRI physicists, and experienced leading clinical neurospecialists from all over the world show how to generate state-of-the-art images and define diagnoses from crucial clinical/pathologic MR imaging correlations for neurologic, neurosurgical, and psychiatric diseases spanning fetal CNS anomalies to disorders of the aging brain. Highlights of this edition include over 6,800 images of remarkable quality, more color images, and new information using advanced techniques, including perfusion and diffusion MRI and functional MRI. A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.
The thoroughly revised and updated Second Edition of this text is part of the popular Lippincott Williams & Wilkins MRI Teaching File Series. The book presents 100 actual case studies that cover a wide range of spinal disorders and demonstrate the use of current MRI techniques to aid in diagnosis.Each case study is illustrated with high-resolution MR images and presented in an easy-to-follow format on a two-page spread. On the left-hand page are the images and the clinical history. On the right-hand page are concise descriptions of the radiographic findings, the diagnosis, and the pathology. This format is ideal for teaching readers how to interpret MR images or for everyday reference at the view box.

Imaging in Spine Surgery tailors the highly regarded Diagnostic Imaging series templates with radiology images and color graphics to the needs of neurosurgeons, orthopedic spine surgeons, pain management and rehab (PM&R) physicians, and anesthesiologists. It provides clinical information for diagnosis and appropriate care for the patient, resulting in the perfect comprehensive text for spine surgeons. Combines chapters that include all entities that neurosurgeons, orthopedic spine surgeons, PM&R physicians, and anesthesiologists who do spine procedures are likely to encounter from the following Amirsys radiology titles: Imaging Anatomy: Musculoskeletal by Manaster Diagnostic Imaging: Spine by Ross Specialty Imaging: Craniovertebral Junction by Ross Specialty Imaging: Postoperative Spine by Ross Specialty Imaging: Pain Management by LaBarge Allows readers to understand the significance of a given radiologic finding and what should be done next for the appropriate care of that patient Each chapter contains Key Facts and 4 images (a mix of radiology images and drawings) with captions and extensive annotations designed specifically for surgeons, important clinical information, and definitions and clarifications of unfamiliar radiology nomenclature Selected prose intros and imaging anatomy chapters help nonradiology clinicians quickly master the key points of imaging relevant to spine surgery Written at a level accessible to neurosurgery and orthopedic residents, but also contains "pearls" the most experienced surgeons will find useful
Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Spine combines hard case material with practical techniques from the experts to bring you a comprehensive resource with the vast changes occurring in spinal MRI. From the first chapter to the last, this exceptional reference contains the most practical, most current information you need to enhance your diagnostic skills.
Utilizing plentiful radiological images to illustrate each topic, this text is a comprehensive and descriptive review of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) interpretation for the spine, emphasizing standardized nomenclature and grading schemes. The book begins with current MR imaging protocols, including indication, sequencing and advanced imaging techniques, and a review of the relevant anatomy of the spine and its anomalies. Subsequent chapters encompass topics of trauma, degenerative disease, infection, inflammatory disease, as well as neoplastic and metabolic disease. Spinal cord and dural lesions will also be presented, with additional chapters dedicated to MRI evaluation of the post-operative patient. The format is reader-friendly, utilizing an efficient presentation of the essential principles and important findings on MR images of the spine, with a wealth of high-quality figures, graphics and tables for differential diagnosis as well as tips and tricks from experts in the field. Presenting the most up-to-date protocols and suggested interpretations, MRI of the Spine will be a solid reference for orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists, neurosurgeons, radiologists and all clinicians and support staff caring for the spine.
