Book Description

This ebook is unique. Imaging of Bones and Joints: A Concise; Multimodality Approach; (PDF) will lead you through the fundamentals of musculoskeletal imaging using a multimodality approach. Organized by classes of musculoskeletal disorders; it uses a “findings within-the-image” method to help you classify the typical imaging features of each condition.

As a complete reference compiled by well-known specialists in the field; it is beneficial for both practicing radiologists and those in training.

Emphasis on the essentials

Offers a solid foundation of what the radiologist needs to know when inferring musculoskeletal imaging studies; including the indications for when to use numerous imaging modalities.

“Findings within the image”

An outstanding presentation method for learning to interpret joint and bone images.

Find it quickly

In addition to a comprehensive text and high-quality images; important points are summarized in tables; boxes and illustrative figures for quick reference.

Additional features are included on the Thieme MediaCenter
