In radiology, adequate communication with the different specialists is fundamental, for which it is essential to speak the same language unifying diagnostic criteria and adopting a single nomenclature that facilitates the diagnostic-therapeutic process.


Respect for spinal injuries many original publications classifications of thoracolumbar spine injuries that are too complex, incomplete or lack a rigorous scientific basis. The AOSpine Injury Classification System represents an improvement over the previous ones, proposing a more structured and less complex classification scheme that takes into account the inherent variability of spinal injuries and each important mode of failure. 


The evaluation and validation of this system is a continuous process. Only with global and interdiciplinary effort will the final objective of a comprehensive and clinically relevant classification be achieved. Considering the fundamental role of image studies in these classifications, radiologists must take a more active role, as we have much to contribute.
