Atlas of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Anatomy provides an essential grounding in normal ultrasound anatomy, enabling the reader to assess whether anatomy is disrupted through injury or disease. The book is structured systematically, with all commonly imaged areas illustrated by high quality ultrasound scans with accompanying concise descriptive text. Features of the second edition: • Over 100 individual anatomical descriptions • Numerous new images from the latest generation ultrasound machines • Improved surface anatomy diagrams indicating limb and probe optimal positions for each area of anatomy • Numerous radiographic anatomical diagrams showing ultrasound probe overlying the anatomical structure for improved visual understanding Atlas of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Anatomy appeals to a wide range of practitioners who need to visualize the musculoskeletal system to diagnose injuries or locate blood vessels or nerves while undertaking clinical procedures. Radiologists, sonographers, anaesthetists, physiotherapists, rheumatologists, and orthopaedic surgeons will find this an invaluable practical reference.
'… this atlas achieves its goal to be a helpful pocket reference, rather than a textbook. There are few other such texts available for musculoskeletal imaging, with larger volumes serving as a much more comprehensive works carrying a much greater price. The book is suitable for the intended readership, both for the experienced and inexperienced practitioner, as a basis for ultrasound review of the musculoskeletal system.' Ultrasound

Reviewer: Trystain D. Johnson, M.D.(University of Colorado Health Sciences Center) Description: This book is a concise diagrammatic and illustrative atlas of basic musculoskeletal anatomy pertinent to ultrasound examination. Purpose: The authors aim to provide the fundamental anatomic knowledge needed to examine the musculoskeletal system by sonography. This book serves this purpose adequately, providing the groundwork in normal anatomy which the reader can expand on with more comprehensive atlases and textbooks. Audience: Intended for those beginning to learn how to scan the musculoskeletal system, this book is suitable for sonographers, students, residents and practitioners. Drs. Bradley and O'Donnell are credible voices for this introduction. Features: In a segmental approach, all commonly imaged areas are covered in various planes to best show the anatomy. Images are clearly marked with only pertinent labels, and most diagrams and images fall on the same page to more easily correlate transducer orientation, body site and ultrasound imagery. The extremities, particularly the wrists and hands, are well covered. In the case of the shoulder, however, the most widely scanned area in musculoskeletal sonography, the coverage is a bit light, perhaps requiring additional referencing. Assessment: This book is a worthwhile basic reference for those learning to scan the musculoskeletal system, but not comprehensive enough for those who will also interpret the images. This atlas covers some material that larger, reference textbooks do, but without the verbosity. If a basic anatomic atlas for musculoskeletal ultrasound is needed, Drs. Bradley and O'Donnell have provided a useful, concise and easy to reference resource.
