Spine Imaging: Case Review Series,
Edition 3 Expert Consult - Online and Print
By Efrat Saraf-Lavi, MD

Publication Date: 30 Oct 2013

Spine Imaging, a title in the popular Case Review Series, helps you effectively prepare for certification, recertification, and practice in spine imaging with case studies that test your knowledge of all essential topics. This medical reference book will show you how to make confident, final diagnoses through accurate pattern recognition, clinical correlation, and differential diagnosis.

"This book is likely to be most useful for (radiology) trainees in a neuroradiology department."

Key Features

  •  Prepare effectively by reviewing 160 spine imaging cases, organized by level of difficulty, that mimic the new format of radiology certification and recertification exams. Every case includes at least 3 images and 4 multiple-choice review questions, along with rationales that explain why each answer is correct or incorrect.

New Features

  • Ensure your knowledge is up to date with the aid of new and updated spinal imaging case studies covering modalities such as Spinal MRA imaging, SWI, CINE CSF flow, MR myelography and peripheral nerve imaging. New cases include discal cyst, polymyalgia rheumatica, Gaucher disease, pigmented villonodular synovitis, ventriculus terminalis cyst, and much more.

Book Reviews

"This book is likely to be most useful for (radiology) trainees in a neuroradiology department. Unfortunately, at the time of the review this book was not yet available electronically via the ExpertConsult website (access is included with book purchase) but if the electronic image quality is sufficient this is likely to be a useful resource to readers and may widen its appeal."
