For musculoskeletal pathologies, imaging-based measurements and classifications are often used to determine disease state, treatment, and prognosis. The radiologist is required to provide the requesting clinician with this information as part of the report on findings and diagnosis.
This practical book offers readers to look up all diagnostic radiological measurement methods and classifications currently used in musculoskeletal radiology (apart from fracture classifications). How the different measurements are performed is shown in over drawings and radiological images which show the appropriate measurement lines and markings.
The book is structured according to anatomic sites and pathologies to allow easy access to the relevant measurement methods and classifications. Boxes and tables are used to summarize and highlight important information.
