For many healthcare professionals, musculoskeletal diseases represent the "bread and butter" topic after graduation. Therefore, radiological education in respect of the musculoskeletal system is vital in ensuring adequate patient management and cost-effective use of healthcare resources.
This book illustrates the clinical anatomy of the musculoskeletal system by means of images obtained using magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and ultrasound. Based on an integrated multimodality approach, each anatomical region is presented with a special focus on clinically relevant anatomical details and the characteristic findings observed in patients referred by physicians.
Through a wealth of images, A Radiologically Guided Approach to Musculoskeletal Anatomy is intended as a bridge from a standard anatomical atlas to diagnostic imaging. It will assist in the everyday interpretation of imaging studies of the musculoskeletal system, providing prompt answers to frequently encountered questions. Clinical notes and self-assessment modules are also provided.
All who wish to learn more about the role of diagnostic imaging of the musculoskeletal system will find this book to be of great value. It will benefit most medical students, residents and professionals in the fields of Orthopaedics, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation and Radiology, while being a valuable tool for radiology technologists and professionals in other fields of health care, including rehabilitation.
