Imaging of the postoperative spine is common, although it remains a difficult task for radiologists. This article presents an overview of common surgical approaches and spinal hardware, and specific complications that may be associated with each procedure. In addition, expected postoperative changes and complications that are common among procedures, with their differential diagnosis and imaging features, are discussed.
