About this book

This book is divided into chapters that cover MRI of all structures of the knee joint in the order that is usually used in practice – cruciate ligaments, collateral ligaments, menisci, cartilage, subchondral bone, patella, synovia, muscles and tendons, arteries, veins and bones. With the aid of numerous images, each chapter provides comprehensive descriptions of the anatomy, the normal MR appearance, pathological MR findings, and postoperative MRI appearance. A text box at the end of each chapter clearly describes how the MRI report should be compiled and identifies what should be included when reporting on specific lesions. The book will be an ideal guide for radiologists and will also be relevant for orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists, and physiotherapists.

Reviews

“MRI of the Knee: A Guide to Evaluation and Reporting is a well-written, up-to-date book covering all imaging aspects of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the knee joint. … The MR images are up-to-date, well labeled, and pertinent to today’s imaging practice. Accompanying tables are an added bonus. … a well-thought-out, easy-to-reference text that will be of value to radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, and sports medicine physicians as well as their respective house staff.” (Robert D. Stoffey, Radiology, Vol. 279 (2), May, 2016)

“This book aims to provide a comprehensive aid to reporting all aspects of MRI of the knee in a concise text. … The figures used in each chapter are of good quality and provide clear examples of most of the pathologies described in the text. … It is a good first read for the novice radiologist to use when reporting MRI of the knee and even an expert reporter could find this useful as a reference.” (Dr. Peter Mullaney, RAD Magazine, October, 2015)

“This book aims to cover most knee pathology, including the important area of postoperative appearance. The purpose is to systematically review MR imaging of the knee, with a special emphasis on postoperative imaging. … The audience is resident or attending radiologists or orthopedic surgeons.” (Winnie Anne Mar, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2015)
