The Atlas of Osteoporosis, now in full color, is the largest and highest-quality collection of images relating to all areas of osteoporosis. The new third edition includes photographs, slides of pathology and histology specimens, radiographic images, flow charts, schematics, anatomical illustrations, tables, and charts. Designed to be useful to a broad readership interested in the disorder, the Atlas includes well-established basics of osteoporosis (skeletal biology, nutrition, exercise, and growth) and new developments in the field. Sections that have been significantly expanded include genetics, bone densitometry, and the laboratory evaluation of bone disorders. The striking, four-color format combined with the breadth of information it contains make this book an invaluable resource for researchers, physicians, and all professionals involved in the study and treatment of osteoporosis.
