Trauma Radiology Course - registrations for our December course in Melbourne are now open!
REGISTER HERE: http://goo.gl/6aBfbl
Also coming to Chicago in June 2015 - details soon!
Just to clarify, this is a face to face course in Melbourne, Australia. It is not a web course.
Maybe we will run an online version in the future if people are interested but there are no formal plans for this yet.
Bilateral C6/7 facet joint dislocation with locked facets. The inferior articular facet of the superior vertebra is locked in front of the superior facet of the inferior vertebra. There is a high risk of cord injury which can be permanent if the dislocation is not promptly corrected.
What is it? Where is it? And… how did it get there?
Any person wondering “is that a cucumber?” does not appreciate the great utility of CT density. A cucumber is mainly water and so would appear grey on CT but this vegetable is black and so contains a lot of air. Can you think of a vegetable that is a similar shape to a cucumber but is a lot less dense? If you can then you have just learnt one answer to this quiz question. The next thing to learn is that this vegetable is best taken orally!
