Chapters on the spine, shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist, hip and pelvis, lower extremity, and foot and ankle address site-specific congenital and acquired lesions. Subsequent chapters cover generalized orthopedic diseases such as neurofibromatosis and osteogenesis imperfecta, infectious processes, neuromuscular diseases, musculoskeletal tumors, trauma, and orthopedic procedures. The chapters review associated epidemiology, clinical presentation and evolution, treatment, and differential diagnoses, with in-depht analysis of imaging characteristics. With more than 1800 images, high-quality MRI, CT, and US examples complement the radiographs of a broad variety of musculoskeletal disorders.
Emphasizes differential diagnosis to help you distinguish among diseases and disorders with similar imaging presentations.
100s of new and additional images—three-times more than the previous edition—complement the cases to provide you with key imaging findings and specific "pearls" to remember.
Cases are divided into three levels of difficulty, "Opening Round," "Fair Game," and "Challenge," so you can test yourself and monitor your progress.
All topics have been selected from the ABR Core Examination study guide.
800 multiple choice questionssimulate questions in the Radiology Core and MOC Examinations.
Each figure is labeled and annotated with a legend that discusses the imaging findings.
Cases are enhanced with additional images that emphasize other important features of the disease or condition discussed.Covers the latest hot topics in musculoskeletal imaging including: compressive neuropathy, emergent musculoskeletal conditions, and secondary signs of ligamentous injury as well as metabolic diseases such as atypical femur fracture from chronic bisphosphonate use.
Updated and expanded coverageof the latest high-tech imaging procedures and modalities to help you stay abreast of recent advances and trends in musculoskeletal imaging.
"Over 70 international experts have submitted an excellent range of cases encompassing both essential concepts and encountered diagnoses. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service
