Overview

The second edition of Bone and Joint Disorders, derived from the critically acclaimed series Differential Diagnosis in Conventional Radiology, provides the essential information you need to make the conventional x-ray an effective tool in diagnosing disorders affecting the bones and joints.

The book is organized according to classes of radiologic findings, with separate chapters addressing the differential diagnosis of osteopenia, osteosclerosis, trauma and fractures, arthritis, and tumors, as well as the differential diagnosis of lesions specific to anatomic sites. Concise but comprehensive tables outline key information about findings and etiology, and provide additional commentary on pertinent clinical data, such as common locations, frequency, and prevalence of the described disease or disorder.

Highlights:

  • Organizes information according to classes of radiologic findings, mirroring the situation encountered in clinical practice
  • Uses easy-to-reference tables that classify findings,
    correlate differential diagnoses, and provide key adjunct clinical information to help in confirm the diagnosis
  • Includes more than 1,000 images and illustrations that are captioned by succinct descriptions, pinpointing key characteristics of disorders
  • Features completely rewritten chapters, "Localized Bone
    Lesions" and "Joint Diseases," with all new radiographs, and a greatly expanded chapter, "Trauma and Fractures," with many new and improved radiographs and schematic diagrams

Authoritative and comprehensive, Bone and Joint Disorders is an outstanding professional reference for the radiologist who must develop diagnoses and differential diagnoses of bone and joint disorders. This book is also of interest to residents preparing for their specialist examinations.
