    Instability of the cervical spine can remain undetected on flexion/extension plain radiograph or CT. Recent imaging protocols for the assessment of cervical trauma patients include routine CT of the entire cervical spine with three-dimensional reformation and the utilization of MR imaging with fluid-sensitive sequences.   Patients with acute cervical spinal cord injury present complex clinical challenges. These injuries may result in motor and sensory deficits and also in cardiovascular and respiratory perturbations. Increased attention to critical care support has led to improved survival and recovery in many patients. The methods and technology used to diagnose and classify these injuries as well as Cited by:

    Acute cervical spine trauma encompasses a wide range of potential injuries to ligaments, muscles, bones, and spinal cord that follow acute incidents ranging from a seemingly innocuous fall to a high-energy motor vehicle accident.

      This video “Spinal Trauma: Cervical Trauma Protocol, Common Spinal Fractures” is part of the Lecturio course “Radiology” WATCH the complete course on http.   Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been playing an increasingly important role in the spinal trauma patients due to high sensitivity for detection of acute soft tissue and cord injuries. More and more patients are undergoing MRI for spinal trauma in the emergency settings, thus necessitating the interpreting physicians to be familiar with MRI findings in spinal by:

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Harris, John H., Radiology of acute cervical spine trauma. Baltimore: Williams & Wilkins, © Twenty-one patients with acute neurologic deficits following cervical spine trauma were evaluated with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging (n = 21), computed tomography enhanced with intrathecal contrast material (CT myelography) (n = 18), myelography (n = 13), cervical spine radiography (n = 21), and intraoperative sonography (n = 7).Cited by:   Up to 17% of patients have a missed or delayed diagnosis of cervical spine injury, with a risk of permanent neurologic deficit after missed injury of 29%.

Most cervical spine fractures occur predominantly at two levels. One third of injuries occur at the level of C2, and one half of injuries occur at the level of C6 or C7. ACR Appropriateness Criteria® 2 Suspected Spine Trauma Variant 3: Age greater than or equal to 16 years.

NEXUS CRITERIA • Midline cervical spine tenderness • Focal neurological deficit • Intoxication • Painful distracting injury • Altered mental status – GCS.Advances in imaging technology have been successfully applied in the emergency trauma setting with great benefit providing early, accurate and efficient diagnoses.

Gaps in the knowledge of imaging acute spinal injury remain, despite a vast wealth of useful research Cited by: Following an episode of significant trauma, the supporting structures of the cervical spine often require definitive imaging.

CT reliably excludes most fractures, however suffers from the inability to evaluate many acute types of disc injury, as well as any neurological injury.
