)-- MRI is the imaging modality of choice for spine surgeons, and a majority of them prefer to review images on their own in addition to a radiologist’s report. However, few spine surgeons receive formal training on how to evaluate MRIs.
Designed specifically for spine surgeons and specialists, "MRI Essentials for the Spine Specialist" is a comprehensive text that details the complex MRI anatomy of the spine and the spectrum of pathological findings in patients with spinal disorders. Covering basic concepts such as the physics of MRI and normal MRI anatomy of the spine as well as advanced MRI techniques, this book is an essential companion for clinicians that helps them develop a systematic approach to the accurate interpretation of spine MRI studies.
“This text is a crucial collection of information that all spine practitioners should read and utilize as a resource in the diagnosis and treatment of our patients with spinal disorders. I commend the editor and all the authors for their commitment to this educational endeavor and anticipate that this text will be well-received by all spine specialists, both operative and nonoperative.” – From the Foreword by Jeffrey C. Wang, MD
"MRI Essentials for the Spine Specialist" is an important resource for spine surgeons, interventional and non-interventional pain specialists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, sports medicine specialists, and any other physicians or allied health professionals caring for patients with spinal disorders.
