al spine imaging is indicated. An accurate history, physical examination and radiographic screening are required, preferably with computed tomography imaging, or five-view plain X-ray if computed tomography is unavailable. <span>Magnetic resonance imaging should be considered in patients with neurologic symptoms or advanced cervical degenerative disease, as these patients are at particular risk of acute disc and ligamentous injury following trauma. While cervical spine injury is more common in patients with multiple injuries, isolated injury may occur following comparatively minor traumatic incidents.1 A recent meta-analys

Question
  • NEXUS assessment of cervical injuries?
Answer
  • altered mental status
  • midline cervical tenderness
  • focal neurologic deficit
  • evidence of drug or alcohol intoxication, and
  • presence of other injury considered painful enough to distract from neck pain.
