Musculoskeletal Imaging, third edition, features almost 400 cases drawn from the teaching files of leading medical centers.
These practical cases encompass all imaging modalities - ncluding radiography, CT, MR, nuclear medicine, and sonography--as well as all categories of musculoskeletal disease, including trauma, tumors, joint disease, endocrine, metabolic bone disease, and more.
Organized by anatomic region, each case follows a consistent format and is presented as an unknown diagnosis with brief clinical history, images, description of findings, differentials, diagnosis, and discussion of care. This format simulates the experience of working through a case with an expert consultant, making Musculoskeletal Imaging an ideal resource for sharpening diagnostic skills for those preparing for board examinations or for reinforcing practical knowledge.
