About this book

Though magnetic resonance imaging has helped revolutionize the field of orthopedic medicine, a difference in perspective persists between radiology and orthopedic specialists. Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Orthopedic Sports Medicine is an interdisciplinary resource designed to bridge this gap. Radiologists will gain insight into why surgeons order particular imaging studies, and orthopedic surgeons will learn when to order an MRI and how to best interpret its results. An orthopedic expert and a radiology expert weigh in on every chapter to provide in-depth analysis of the spine, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle and other topics. Each subject is further examined in case studies, algorithms, flow charts, anatomical illustrations and hundreds of sample MR images. Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Orthopedic Sports Medicine is the only reference that combines the specialized knowledge of radiologists and orthopedic sports medicine physicians to accomplish the goal of better patient care.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book does a remarkable job of bringing together orthopedic sports and MRI radiologic imaging experts to create a practical reference to assist sports medicine clinicians in interpreting common MR images related to sports injuries. … The book targets sports medicine clinicians … who make decisions based on MR images. … This is a must-read for orthopedic residents, radiology residents, sports medicine clinicians, and MRI radiologists who treat them." (Mark R. Hutchinson, Doody’s Review Services, January, 2009)
