Completely revised, this popular, easy-to-read resource contains high-quality digital radiographs with correlating MRIs throughout and a practical organization that aids in your recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of common arthritides. It is perfect for residents in training and experienced radiologists wishing to refresh their knowledge. Easily reference diagnostic guidance by presenting symptom, see what to look for, and understand how to effectively diagnose the patient. Reference key information quickly and easily thanks to a consistent, user-friendly format and a unique two-part organization (radiologic approaches to specific joints and full description of the individual common arthritides) that facilitates finding the exact information you need for any joint in the body. Improve the accuracy of your diagnoses by interpreting radiographs and comparing them with correlating MRI images. Benefit from the latest advancements and techniques found in completely revised and rewritten chapters. Understand the nuances and subtleties of how arthritides present through over 350 high-quality digital images.
This edition of this popular book is a well-written and practical introduction to the radiographic diagnosis of articular disorders. Features numerous high-quality radiographs and a new chapter on the evaluation of the foot and ankle. WHAT'S NEW: The text has been revised and updated throughout, including new illustrations that more clearly demonstrate key concepts. The opening chapter, Imaging, has been expanded to include MR imaging for arthritis. A new chapter on The Approach to the Foot has been added to Section I. OUTSTANDING FEATURES: Content features more radiographs than words: readers are able to see radiographic changes rather than simply reading about them. Coverage addresses numerous areas of concern to the practitioner, including: primary, secondary, and erosive osteoarthritis of the hand, foot, wrist, hip and knee, rheumatoid arthritis, Reiter's disease as it relates to sacroiliac joints and other extra-axial joints, and radiographic changes of the hip, including pigmented villonodular synovitis
Over 3,800 exquisite images demonstrate every principle and capture the characteristic presentations of the most frequently encountered disorders. The result is a remarkably thorough, yet focused and pragmatic, source of clinical guidance. The New Edition updates and distills all of the most important content from Dr. Donald Resnick's 5-volume Diagnosis of Bone and Joint Disorders, 4th Edition into a single, concise source. Together with new co-editor Mark J. Kransdorf, MD, Dr. Resnick and 38 other distinguished experts zero in on the specific, state-of-the-art musculoskeletal imaging and interpretation knowledge practitioners need today. Provides 2,900 outstanding images that depict all important concepts, techniques, and findings. Represents a highly efficient review source for oral and written radiology examinations, as well as an indispensable reference tool for clinical practice. Covers hot topics such as spinal interventional procedures · cartilage imaging · disorders of muscle · diagnostic ultrasonography · internal derangement of joints · target-area approach to articular disorders · rheumatoid arthritis and related diseases · crystal-induced diseases · sports injuries · MR arthrography · and much more. Offers an increased emphasis on MR imaging, an increasingly important and versatile diagnostic modality. Presents many new illustrations not found in the Diagnosis of Bone and Joint Disorders, 4th Edition 5-volume set.

maging technology plays an essential role in the diagnosis of soft tissue tumors as well as in surgical planning. Not only can imaging studies such as CT and MRI determine the relationship between a tumor and adjacent vessels and nerves, but, because some soft tissue tumors possess specific radiologic presentations, imaging can help pinpoint the tumor type. Based on cases seen at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and the Mayo Clinic, this comprehensive reference offers detailed visually supported information on the radiologic evaluation of soft tissue tumors and tumor-like lesions. Inside, readers will explore the full spectrum of soft tissue pathologies, with over 1400 images that highlight both common and atypical presentations. The book’s expert authors offer valuable advice on selecting the most appropriate imaging modality for each tumor type.
Previously titled "Radiology of the Foot and Ankle," this updated Third Edition reflects a greater emphasis on multimodality imaging approaches to solve diagnostic challenges, specifically the increased use of ultrasound, MR imaging, CT, and diagnostic interventional techniques.
Written by an acknowledged master in the field, Skeletal Radiology: The Bare Bones is a succinct, focused, clinically oriented textbook in musculoskeletal radiology. It presents the core knowledge base in musculoskeletal imaging necessary for radiology residents and practitioners. Major sections focus on trauma, tumors and tumor-like lesions, joint disease, and miscellaneous topics such as developmental and congenital conditions, metabolic, endocrine, and nutritional conditions, infection and marrow disease, postsurgical imaging, and interventional procedures. Emphasis is on understanding how abnormalities on images mirror the specific anatomic and pathophysiologic features of diseases. This Third Edition includes all modalities in current use, including plain film, ultrasound, PET-CT, and much more MRI than previous editions. The book includes over 900 images selected from the teaching files and clinical case material at leading medical centers.
Each issue includes separate but continuously paged sections called: Nuclear medicine, and: Ultrasound.
