Complete guide to MRI evaluation of shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, and finger disorders.
Presents a practical approach to MRI interpretation, emphasizing the clinical correlations of imaging findings. More than 400 MRI scans show normal anatomy and pathologic findings, and a full-color cadaveric atlas familiarizes readers with anatomic structures seen on MR images.
Coverage of each joint begins with a review of MRI anatomy with cadaveric correlation and proceeds to technical MR imaging considerations and clinical assessment. Subsequent chapters thoroughly describe and illustrate MRI findings for specific disorders, including rotator cuff disease, nerve entrapment syndromes, osteochondral bodies, and triangular fibrocartilage disorders.
