The introduction of MRI MS opened new perspectives, also in the traumatology of the vertebral column. Using this method it is possible to show post-traumatic pathology of intervertebral disks and of the ligament apparatus, which is of crucial importance not only for the diagnostics of alterations resulting from pressure exerted by the damaged disk, but also for the evaluation of the vertebral column stability. On these grounds all appropriate treatment method can be chosen. A clinical MRI study of 70 patients with injury of the vertebral column and post-traumatic spinal cord lesions is presented in the paper.
