Diagnostic Joint Imaging in Rheumatology presents a practical and comprehensive approach that provides a robust framework for review and interpretation of joint imaging studies. This resource is organized by anatomic region affected - different from current books in the market organized by disease. This approach of addressing each individual region is more valuable to learners, who will be prompted to consult this reference after being presented with patients who have symptoms affecting specific anatomic regions. Patients present with pain/stiffness in affected joints/regions and not with established diagnoses. A high proportion of patients presenting to primary care practitioners, including internists, have symptoms based in musculoskeletal disease. An even higher proportion of patients presenting to rheumatologists have symptoms and signs of musculoskeletal disorders. These patients need to be assessed for joint diseases, and in addition to 'standard' data collection, diagnostic imaging is often an integral element of the evaluation. Trainees, internists and rheumatologists will benefit from the convenient access to this reference source that clearly delineates the scenarios in which joint imaging could aid in making a diagnosis, which imaging modalities to request, the sensitivity and specificity of the imaging test for each type of joint disease, most importantly - how to make their own assessment of the imaging, and when to request help from a musculoskeletal radiologist. Pulls together a collection of patient-derived imaging data that will significantly contribute to the development of more robust precision medicine approaches to joint health Focuses on simple imaging techniques that do not require expensive and technologically demanding techniques, making this relevant in lower resource settings world-wide Illustrates the importance of plain radiographs in the diagnosis of many rheumatologic diseases
This book provides an introduction to the role of medical imaging in the diagnosis and management of rheumatologic diseases. It reviews basic radiographic findings of common and rare arthropathies while offering a focused and practical discussion of advanced imaging modalities such as CT, ultrasonography, and MRI. The book begins with a discussion on soft tissue changes, bone and bone density, articular surface changes, and bone alignment. Following this is an examination of the use of advanced imaging modalities including CT, ultrasound, and MRI as well as different disease categories such as inflammatory arthritis, degenerative arthritis, infectious arthritis, and crystalline arthropathy. Subsequent chapters include exercises and case examples for imaging hands and wrists, knees, hips, foot and ankle, shoulder, and the spine. Diagnostic Radiology of Rheumatic Diseases is an essential and practical resource for senior medical students, residents, fellows, and physicians in rheumatology, imaging and radiology, immunology, and internal medicine.

Provides osteoarticular and extra-articular features and findings to show how imaging benefits diagnosis and management of complex rheumatologic conditions. Creates a one-stop shop with comprehensive coverage of imaging for all rheumatic conditions, including metabolic conditions and pediatric disorders. Presents interventional techniques—injections, arthrography, radiofrequency ablation—to create the perfect diagnostic and interventional clinical tool.
This handbook provides a comprehensive insight into how imaging techniques should be applied to particular clinical problems and how the results can be used to determine the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal conditions.
This book offers an excellent review of the various rheumatological conditions, both common and uncommon, that may present on imaging on a daily basis. The book uses a unique format that will be beneficial for clinicians, radiologists, medical students, and consultant staff. The text is written by both rheumatology and radiology staff to provide a balanced approach. A clinical overview and the common clinical presentations are briefly reviewed for each condition followed by a more detailed discussion of imaging findings produced by the various imaging modalities, including radiographs, ultrasound, MRI, CT, and nuclear medicine. This book details the imaging of normal musculoskeletal anatomy and pathology; discusses image-guided musculoskeletal interventions; and examines disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, connective tissue disease, osteoarthritis, osteonecrosis, infection-related arthritis, soft tissue calcification, and bone and synovial tumors. Featuring over 600 multi-part, high-resolution images of rheumatic diseases across current imaging modalities, Essential Imaging in Rheumatology offers up-to-date and complete information on the imaging of these disorders. Developed by the authors of Essential Imaging In Rheumatology are three new exciting interactive imaging Apps that enhance the invaluable information provided in the book. Rheumatology and imaging are closely linked specialties particularly with the expansion of the imaging armamentarium available to the rheumatologists in the last decade. Imaging has a strong impact on patient diagnosis, management and outcome, requiring both the rheumatologist and the radiologist to have a clear understanding of pathologies and their variable imaging appearances, differential diagnosis and optimal imaging algorithms. A primary focus of our " Imaging In Rheumatology Edicational Initiative " is to thus to stimulate interest in rheumatological imaging and as such we are delighted to provide a be able to provide our "UnRavelling Spondyloarthropathy" App free.
