Basic Spine – Chapter 4 – Non-Degenerative disease

This is the fourth chapter in a review of basic spine imaging. This chapter covers non-degenerative disease, such as tumors, inflammatory disease, and other spine abnormalities. This chapter uses a location based approach to narrow differential diagnoses based on whether abnormalities are intramedullary, extramedullary but intradural, and extradural.

The level of this lecture is appropriate for medical students, junior residents, and trainees in other specialties who have an interest in spine imaging or may see patients with spine disease.
