In the past, radiographs of the hand have been described as the “skeleton’s calling card”, showing manifestations of many different diseases. As hand and wrist imaging has become increasingly sophisticated, this observation has become more true than ever.
This is a comprehensive, up-to-date textbook on imaging of the hand and wrist. In the first part of the book, the various imaging techniques are discussed in detail. Individual chapters are devoted to radiography, ultrasound, CT, MRI and nuclear medicine. The second part of the book gives an authoritative review of the various pathologies that may be encountered in the hand and wrist, encompassing congenital and developmental abnormalities, trauma, and the full range of localized and systemic disorders. Each chapter is written by an acknowledged expert in the field, and a wealth of illustrative material is included. This book will be of great value to musculoskeletal and general radiologists, orthopaedic surgeons and rheumatologists.
