About this book

In this fourth edition of Combined Scintigraphic and Radiographic Diagnosis of Bone and Joint Diseases, the text has been thoroughly amended, updated, and partially rearranged to reflect the latest advances. In addition to discussing the role of pinhole imaging in the range of disorders previously covered, the new edition pays detailed attention to the novel diagnostic use of gamma correction pinhole bone scan in a broad spectrum of skeletal disorders. A large number of state of the art pinhole scans and corroborative CT, MRI, and/or ultrasound images are presented side by side. The book has been enlarged to encompass various new topics, including occult fractures; cervical sprain and whiplash trauma; bone marrow edema; microfractures of trabeculae; evident, gaping, and stress fractures; soft tissue diseases; and differential diagnosis. This new edition will be essential reading for practitioners and researchers in nuclear medicine, radiology, orthopedic surgery, and pathology.

Reviews

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

“This revision is well written and clearly illustrated with superb images and a convenient index. I highly recommend this book to nuclear physicians, radiologists, pathologists, orthopedic specialties, and scientists, as well as to imaging technologists and medical students.” (E. Edmund Kim, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 54 (7), July, 2013)
