MRI Spine in Low Backache (for the General Practitioners)

by G Balachandran

This book MRI Spine in Low Backache for the General Practitioners is designed to serve as an introductory guide for those busy practitioners who strive to enhance their clinical skills and ability to provide excellent care to patients suffering from pain due to lumbar spinal diseases. This is a unique book in which MRI interpretation of lumbar spine has been made very easy. Each image has a corresponding line diagram, followed by image interpretation and a brief comment about the disease. Color diagrams are also used to enhance the understanding of the images. It is hoped that after reading this book physicians will become familiar with the MR images and the correlating imaging studies with clinical findings. This book is an effort to help the clinician in the visualization of the lumbar spine by defining normal and abnormal spinal anatomy and pathology in a clear concise manner. This will be attempted by means of high quality images, abundant line diagrams (some of them in color), image interpretation and appropriate comments. A general overview in certain conditions (spine secondaries, disc herniations, etc.) is given in order to give an in-depth understanding of the particular condition. This pocket book has seventy seven MR images, ninety one line diagrams, fifteen color images and six tables. Almost each MR image has a corresponding line diagram for better interpretation and understanding. It gives a glimpse of the art of interpretation of lumbar spinal MR images needed for day to day practice. This handy book would be most useful not only to general practitioners but also young radiologists and all physicians.
