About this book

Filling a gap in the literature, this is the first book to comprehensively present fracture sonography as a diagnostic tool that can complement and in some cases even replace conventional radiological imaging.

Guiding readers step by step through a patient examination, it is an invaluable guide to implementing this technique in clinical practice. It also presents algorithms, tips, tricks and pitfalls shared by experienced authors, making it a useful reference resource for all those practicing in the field.

This book is of interest to a wide readership, including orthopedic, pediatric and trauma surgeons, emergency physicians, pediatric radiologists and general practitioners.
