Authored by renowned neuroradiologist Steven P. Meyers, Differential Diagnosis in Neuroimaging: Spine is a stellar guide for identifying and diagnosing cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine anomalies based on location and neuroimaging results. The succinct text reflects more than 25 years of hands-on experience gleaned from advanced training and educating residents and fellows in radiology, neurosurgery, and orthopaedic surgery. The high-quality MRI, CT, and X-ray images have been collected over Dr. Meyers's lengthy career, presenting an unsurpassed visual learning tool.
The distinctive 'three-column table plus images' format is easy to incorporate into clinical practice, setting this book apart from larger, disease-oriented radiologic tomes. This layout enables readers to quickly recognize and compare abnormalities based on high-resolution images.
•Tabular columns organized by anatomical abnormality include imaging findings and a summary of key clinical data that correlates to the images
•Congenital/developmental abnormalities, spinal deformities, and acquired pathologies in both children and adults
•Lesions organized by region including dural, intradural extramedullary, extra-dural, and sacrum
•More than 600 figures illustrate the radiological appearance of spinal tumors, lesions, deformities, and injuries
•Spinal cord imaging for the diagnosis of intradural intramedullary lesions and spinal trauma
This visually rich resource is a must-have diagnostic tool for trainee and practicing radiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, physiatrists, and orthopaedic surgeons who specialize in treating spine-related conditions. The highly practical format makes it ideal for daily rounds, as well as a robust study guide for physicians preparing for board exams.
