Radiology approach

Watch your back! Spinal imaging in trauma

Spinal trauma imaging is one of the most pressured and challenging areas radiologists face as they seek to assess the extent of injuries to patients. The issue was tackled in detail at the British Institute of Radiology virtual congress by spinal imaging specialist Professor Elizabeth Dick, who focused on different approaches and protocols for a range of levels of spinal injury and discussed how best to assess and image them, which modalities to use, and the key factors to consider. In her presentation “Watch your back! – an approach to spinal imaging in trauma,” she explored imaging of thoraco-lumbar and cervical spine injury.
