Written by recognized experts, this volume is a comprehensive reference on the use of advanced imaging techniques in the diagnosis and management of spinal trauma. In one cohesive source, the book brings together information on state-of-the-art clinical imaging - including multidetector CT and high-field MRI techniques - and the pathophysiology, neurologic evaluation, medical management, surgical treatment, and postoperative assessment of spine trauma and spinal cord injury. Also included are cutting-edge reviews of experimental imaging techniques and their applications and experimental therapies such as neurotransplantation. More than 700 illustrations - including 180 in full color - complement the text.
