Containing the latest information and based on the color atlas of the same name, An Atlas of Back Pain on CD-ROM not only explains how to determine the underlying causes of patients' conditions but also describes the various treatment options available.

Richly illustrated, the work contains more than 130 X-rays, CT scans, MRI images, and color pictures of both pathology and surgery. The expertly described techniques and procedures combined with the exceptional illustrations enhance the CD-ROM's value as a resource for teaching, residency training, and clinical practice.
