Challenging Cases in Musculoskeletal Imaging

Thieme
Free sample

This book demonstrates how even difficult cases can be diagnosed by taking a systematic approach to image interpretation. Drawing upon decades of experience, Dr. Freyschmidt guides readers from case to case while solving the core problems that arise in making a diagnosis. He shows how initially challenging cases can be turned into cases that only seemed difficult at the outset.

Step-by-step approach:

  • Systematic case presentations: prior history and clinical questions, radiologic findings, pathoanatomic classification, synopsis and discussion, final diagnosis, and comments
  • Arranged by anatomic region: skull, spine, pelvis, shoulder girdle and thoracic cage, upper and lower limbs
  • More than 1,400 high-quality images from the authors case files
  • Over 150 difficult and challenging cases from skeletal radiology
  • Answers questions such as: What are the requirements of a good diagnosis? How is a good diagnosis defined? Which imaging procedure will yield the desired information most quickly and accurately?
  • Describes imaging modalities and gives recommendations on selecting a particular modality

Your instructor in book form: a systematic, case-by-case approach to making a diagnosis!

Is a radiological finding normal or pathologic? This borderline between the two states presents a daunting challenge to radiologists and orthopedic surgeons on a daily basis. Thieme proudly presents the updated and expanded fifth edition of the landmark text generations of physicians have used to differentiate borderline findings!Redesigned for optimal use, the book is organized according to diagnostic questions raised by clinical findings, radiographic findings, or both. You'll find all possible variants in five pathologic categories: anomaly; trauma; necroses; inflammation; and tumor. The book provides imaging examples of the entire body, from the skull base, shoulder, and clavicle, to lower spine, knees, and the feet. More than 4,200 high-quality illustrations give clear examples of potential findings.Key features of this historic text:Lavishly illustrated with more than 4,200 outstanding drawings, photographs, and radiographs--nearly 4 per page! Full coverage of pathologic conditions in their fully developed form, which teaches you to recognize earlier manifestations of the entityExhaustive analysis of borderline findings for both pediatric and adult casesValuable guidelines on integrating pathologic conditions with CT and MRI findingsHere is the encyclopedic resource that will expand your knowledge of findings in skeletal radiology and enhance your diagnostic skills. No personal or professional library is complete without this new standard-bearer in the field!International acclaim for previous editions:Excellent...the 'bible' of anomalies and variants...much worthwhile material...should be available to everyone interpreting skeletal radiographs... --RadiologyThis text must hold a record for a continuously relevant, frequently updated radiological reference...all of the illustrations are state-of-the-art...an invaluable references. --The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery
With an emphasis on the accuracy and dynamic nature of no-radiation ultrasound, leading clinicians from around the world provide practical guidance on how to combine different multiplanar imaging modalities in the analysis and diagnosis of common musculoskeletal disorders.Organized by body region, each of the 13 chapters follows a consistent, easy-to-reference format. The authors guide the reader through clinical indications, technical guidelines, and normal anatomy followed by information on degenerative diseases, inflammatory conditions, traumatic injuries, tumors, and various other musculoskeletal problems. Clear, high-resolution ultrasound images appear side by side with MRI, and in some cases CT, images to teach and train readers how to perform musculoskeletal ultrasound in clinical practice while simultaneously sharpening their diagnostic skills.Features:864 high-quality illustrations, including full-color patient photographs and ultrasound images with MRI correlation to help readers understand how to make an accurate diagnosisBullet points that highlight key facts to facilitate rapid reading and reviewTips on technique, such as how to position the transducer to obtain optimal scansImaging pearls and pitfalls at the end of every chapterAs a handy reference for daily practice or as a review tool before exams, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound with MRI Correlations serves as an indispensable how-to manual for clinicians and residents in radiology, orthopedic surgery, and emergency medicine, as well as an accessible handbook for radiologic technologists.
