  • Guidance in correlating key neuroradiologic findings with the full clinical picture for accurate diagnosis
  • Hundreds of clinical pearls, tables, and radiologic images that sharpen clinical acumen

    Editorial Review(s) 

    "Navigating the Adult Spine is a fantastic resource for all those embarking on a career in [neurosurgery]... The text is easy to read... All imaging modalities are well represented, and the authors do an admirable job of attempting to correlate the pertinent imaging with the underlying pathology...An ideal spinal imaging textbook... This text represents an ample introduction to spinal imaging in general. Drs. Fast and Goldsher have managed to craft a valuable text, complete with clear, concise schematics and tables, which collectively serve to help residents-in-training formulate a mental framework by which to reliably interpret spinal images, regardless of the complexity of the underlying pathological conditions. Importantly, with a list price of $95.00, this is a resource that residents can actually afford, which makes it all the more attractive."--Journal of Neurosurgery

    "It will be useful for practitioners seeking introductory level information regarding the treatment of spinal pathology, and it will be especially useful for residents and medical students. Physiatrists, orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, radiologists, family practice and internal medicine physicians will find it a pertinent clinical reference... The book is well organized into diagnosis-based chapters describing clinical and image findings of various spinal pathologies... Very clear examples of image findings are provided and illustrations provide excellent schematic representations... This is a high quality textbook that should prove to be a useful introductory reference for physicians seeking to improve their knowledge of the radiologic and clinical findings of a broad array of spinal pathology."-- Doody's Reviews
