Neuroradiology is a crucial adjunct to physical examination, history, and laboratory testing in the initial evaluation of patients who are clinically suspected to harbor a brain or spine disorder. Imaging modalities often include either computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. Morphologic imaging is required to obtain a probable diagnosis to support the treatment decisions in pre- and perinatal disorders, vascular diseases, traumatic injuries, metabolic disorders, epilepsy, infection/inflammation, neurodegenerative disorders, degenerative spinal diseases, and tumors of the central nervous system. You should easily recognize findings of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke as well as space-occupying lesions on cross-sectional imaging. Also, for purposes of clinical correlation and management, it is important to understand the pathology behind the different types of intracranial hemorrhage and spine trauma and their common mechanisms.

Spinal imaging
By Mariet G. on 02. August 2017 for Non-Traumatic Abnormalities of the Spine

All the needed information in a nutshell. To assess for spinal pathology "the Winking owl sign" can also be added. It is usually a sign of bone metastasis.
