Professor of Diagnostic Imaging and Chief of Neuroradiology at Yale University School of Medicine, Gordon Sze, MD reviews the full range of symptoms and signs of disorders affecting the spinal cord: neoplasms and postradiation myelopathy, infections, trauma, vascular lesions, demyelinating diseases, and syringohydromyelia.

Written by one of the most widely published authors in the field of diagnostic imaging, this book comprises a necessary addition to every orthopedic surgeon’s library.
