The diagnosis of trauma to the spine — where the slightest oversight may
have catastrophic results — requires a thorough grasp of the spectrum of
resultant pathology as well as the imaging modalities used in making an accurate
diagnosis. In Spinal Trauma, the internationally renowned team of experts
provides a comprehensive, cutting-edge exposition of the current vital role of
imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries to the axial skeleton.
Beginning with a valuable clinical perspective of spinal trauma, the book offers
the reader a unique overview of the biomechanics underlying the beautifully
illustrated pathology of cervical trauma. Acute trauma topics include:
Optimization of imaging modalities
Malalignment — signs and significance
Vertebral fractures — detection and implications
Classification of thoraco-lumbar fractures — rationale
and relevance
Neurovascular injury

Distilling decades of clinical and teaching expertise, the contributors further discuss the current role of imaging in special focus topics, which include:
The pediatric spine
Sports injuries
The rigid spine
Trauma in the elderly
Vertebral collapse, benign and malignant
Spinal trauma therapy
Vertebral fractures and osteoporosis
Neuropathic spine All throughout the book, the focus is
on understanding the injury, and its implications and complications, through “an
imaging approach.” Complete with hundreds of superb MR images and CT
scans, and clear full-color drawings, the authors conclude with a look into the
future, defining clinical trends and research directions. Spinal Trauma — with
its broad scope, practical imaging approach, and current focus — is designed to
enhance confidence and accuracy, making it essential reading for clinicians and
radiologists at all levels.
