Data: 41 clinical variables collected prospectively on 180 patients who presented to the emergency department over a 6 year period in whom the physician was suspicious enough to order a CRP and/or MRI (or other advanced imaging) to evaluate the patient for a spinal infection. 180 patients, 8 excluded, 43 spinal infections and 129 non-infected patients. Definitions of historical variables and derivation of cut-off values for fever, CRP are provided in these files also.
