Spinal Imaging: Critical Topics for Clinical Practice
|Speciality||Neurology,Radiology and Nuclear Medicine|
The book "Spinal Imaging: Critical Topics for Clinical Practice" mainly discusses about Spinal Imaging Critical Topics, which are being used in clinical practice. It contains in-depth discussion of new spinal and peripheral nerve magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques, including cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow studies and MRI neurography. New Sequences for Spinal Magnetic Resonance Imaging explains Basis of Magnetic Resonance Image Formation, Artifacts, Image Pulse Sequences. Additionally, special techniques are explained in a simple manner. Application of magnetic resonance flow imaging in craniospinal disorders, magnetic resonance neurography, and imaging of acute spinal trauma are clearly explained. Different imaging techniques, fracture line, intravertebral fluid collection, intravertebral vacuum cleft, extraosseous soft tissue mass, pedicle abnormality, vertebral morphology, patterns of vertebral signal intensity, contrast enhancement, imaging characteristics of adjacent vertebrae, and new imaging techniques are covered. Magnetic resonance imaging of degenerative spine disease, spinal magnetic resonance imaging techniques and imaging of the posterior spinal elements, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography of congenital spinal anomalies, imaging of spinal tumors, image-guided interventions in the spine and spinal cord, percutaneous vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty, other nonvascular spinal interventions, and postoperative imaging are included in this book.
