A Doody's Core Title for 2015!

Atlas of Ultrasound-Guided Musculoskeletal Injections includes numerous tips and tricks from the field's most experienced and respected practitioners. This unique and state-of–the-art text is ideal for physiatrists, rheumatologists, sports medicine physicians, radiologists, pain medicine specialists, and orthopedic surgeons. With a focus on safety and efficacy, this atlas is a worthwhile investment for any practitioner looking to add ultrasound-guided procedures to their practice or is looking to sharpen their skills. The book opens with informative coverage of the fundamentals of MSK US, including ultrasound physics, preparation and set-up for MSK US procedures, and the rationale and evidence for performing these procedures. The main body of the book dedicates one chapter to a specific US-guided injection or procedure. Each chapter design includes sections on key points, pertinent anatomy, common pathology, US imaging, indications, and technique. The book is divided into 8 sections:

  • Shoulder
  • Elbow
  • Hand and wrist
  • Pelvis
  • Knee
  • Foot and ankle
  • Special procedures (rotator cuff, Percutaneous Trigger finger release, Ultrasound-guided Carpal Tunnel release, and Tenex)
  • Introduction

Atlas of Ultrasound-Guided Musculoskeletal Injections includes coverage of the full spectrum of procedures, ranging from basic US guided joint injections to perinerual injections, tenotomies, and surgical procedures such as percutaneous A1 pulley release, making the book the field's first true cornerstone text and the "go to" resource for any clinician interested in the subject.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Elliot J Roth, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This guide effectively uses high-quality, relevant figures and ultrasound images to demonstrate musculoskeletal anatomy and how to perform ultrasound-guided injections.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe techniques used to perform a wide-array of injections/procedures using musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSK US). Given the lack of any prior comprehensive reference, this is a wonderful resource for clinicians using this technique. The book easily meets its objectives and will help establish the foundation for performing MSK US-guided injections.
Audience: This would be a welcome addition to the library of any residents, physicians, or other healthcare providers planning to use MSK US. The manual provides an easy-to-read chapter introduction and straightforward outline for each of the injections. Practitioners of various training backgrounds will benefit from this book. The editors and many of the chapter authors are leaders in the field of musculoskeletal medicine and/or MSK US and are well suited to give us this excellent reference/instruction book.
Features: Procedures described include large joint, small joint, bursal, tendon sheath, and perineural injections related to regional anatomy including the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, pelvis, knee, foot, and ankle. Additionally, the book describes tenotomy, hematoma aspiration, trigger finger release, and lavage of calcific tendonosis. When multiple techniques are offered, the authors often declare their preference. Patient position, transducer position, needle orientation, and needle approach/target are all clearly described. The greatest strength of this book is the succinct outline format complemented by high-quality images (figures and US images). The only addition that might further enhance this book is access to videos, either online or on a DVD.
Assessment: As far as I'm aware, this is the first book that provides a comprehensive guide to US-guided musculoskeletal injections. Even if it's not, I would consider it one of the best. It is incredibly well organized and would be an excellent addition to the library of any musculoskeletal interventionist.
