Edition 2 Revised edition
OverviewA reference and practical guide on the technology and application of ultrasound to the musculoskeletal system, this volume is organized into three parts: tissue type, areas of special interest and site. It outlines the basic science of of ultrasound, the physical principles related to its clinical application and describes artifacts that may interfere with image quality and lead to potential misinterpretation. The book describes the imaging technique, normal anatomic features and pathologic sonographic findings in a variety of soft tissue lesions, focusing on muscle, tendon, bursa and ligaments. It outlines the application of sonography in joint pathology, articular pathology and paediatric problems as well as the uses of ultrasound in the evaluation of conditions in the skin and subcutaneous tissue, rheumatoid diseases, foreign bodies and pain syndromes following arthroscopy. Finally, the application of ultrasound is described to the shoulder, wrist, elbow, hand, hip and knee. Examination technique, normal anatomy and pathology are covered, and correlative imaging and surgical/anatomic correlation are provided. Cases are presented and imaging algorithms are provided to establish a rational approach to imaging of the musculoskeletal system. A CD-ROM is included to offer real-time ultrasound as well as QuickTime films demonstrating proper examination techniques for shoulder, knee, hand and ankle.
