Spine Imaging: Case Review Series (Case Review)
By Brian C. Bowen
Publisher: Mosby
Paperback - 392 pages

Amazon.com
This book is part of the Case Review series from Mosby, known for its excellent radiology titles. Over 350 spinal images--including MR, CT, plain film, and angiogram images--show a variety of diseases and conditions. The images, along with case questions, are presented on right-hand pages, and the answers and comments appear on the reverse sides. This makes a great review program for the boards. --Carolyn Lewis
