Neck and back pain are very common, particularly among older adults, athletes, and sedentary individuals. And as anyone who has experienced it can attest, a spine condition can detract from quality of life. The key to finding effective and lasting relief is an accurate diagnosis. In addition to a detailed medical history and comprehensive physical examination, medical imaging plays an important role in the diagnosis of many spine conditions.
Because the spine is a complex structure, spinal radiology is highly nuanced and specialized expertise is necessary to accurately interpret the resulting images. However, many health care organizations do not have a diverse team of radiology subspecialists on staff. realradiology—a physician-owned radiology group—offers an excellent alternative: comprehensive teleradiology services.
