Co-authors Seth Smith, Ph.D., assistant professor, and Adrienne Dula, Ph.D., research instructor, both in the Department of Radiology and Radiological Sciences, are applying advanced imaging methods to better understand human spinal cord diseases such as multiple sclerosis, while Barry has expertise in the acquisition and analysis of functional data.

Thirty-seven magnetic resonance (MR) imaging studies were performed with a T magnet and surface coils in 27 patients with suspected spinal cord injuries. Imaging was performed 1 day to 6 weeks after injury. Cord abnormalities were seen with MR in 19 patients, while skeletal and/or ligamentous injuries were seen in 21 (78%).

Effects of Spinal Cord Injury. A spinal cord injury results in a generalized physiological impairment that involves most systems of the body either directly or indirectly. The physiological impairment and the consequent multi-system malfunction caused by SCI are dynamic in nature throughout the patient’s life.

MECHANISMS OF SPINAL INJURY: • FLEXION INJURY: leading to anterior wedging of vertebral body with posterior longitudinal ligament/ interspinous ligament disruption.

This article provides an overview on spinal cord injuries (SCIs). • Radiology nurses care for patients with SCIs during diagnostic procedures. • Nurses will learn important information about care of the SCI patient. • Nurses can apply the review to the case study of a patient with an SCI.

Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a serious disease of the center nervous system (CNS). It is a devastating injury with sudden loss of motor, sensory, and autonomic function distal to the level of trauma and produces great personal and societal costs.
