Reply to the editorial titled “The role of smartphone technology in trauma spine surgery”

Authors: Daniel Dreyfuss, Ido Stahl

The editorial by Dr. Pizones provides a comprehensive view of the difficulty in spinal fracture radiological assessment, and the amount of research required to validate the rather common practice of teleradiological decision making.
