About this book

This book is a comprehensive reference and practical guide on the technology and application of ultrasound to the musculoskeletal system. It is organized into two main sections. The first is devoted to general aspects, while the second provides a systematic overview of the applications of musculoskeletal ultrasound in different areas of the body. Additional sections address instrumentation, interventional procedures, and pediatric applications. Each chapter of the second main section provides an introduction on clinical anatomy and the essentials of clinical history and physical examination. Thereafter, performance of the ultrasound study is explained and the normal and pathological anatomy is reviewed. To assist in understanding, the ultrasound scans are correlated with drawings, photographs, images obtained using other modalities, and anatomic specimens. There is a generous complement of high-quality illustrations based on high-end equipment. This book will acquaint beginners with the basics of musculoskeletal ultrasound, while more advanced sonologists and sonographers will learn new skills, means of avoiding pitfalls, and ways of effectively relating the ultrasound study to the clinical background.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book is geared towards all specialities interested in musculoskeletal ultrasound, including orthopaedics surgeons, sports physicians, rheumatologists and of course radiologists. It would be just as useful to a novice as an experienced practitioner. … I found this book extremely useful with many little tips for improving my own skills. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is enthusiastic about musculoskeletal ultrasound.” (Shah Khan, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 75 (6), June, 2014)

"This book will serve as a terrific reading-room reference … to learn how to apply the cross-sectional modality of US to the musculoskeletal system. Best of all, it is fascinating, readable, and extremely well illustrated … . Each chapter is packed with pearls and is presented with clarity. … The same level of clarity, quality, readability, and comprehensiveness carries through every topic in every chapter. … It has the potential to be both an invaluable tutorial and a constantly used resource for subspecialist musculoskeletal radiologists." (Michael A. Bruno, Radiology, Vol. 252 (2), August, 2009)
