Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Evan A Liokis, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This excellent, all-inclusive cross-sectional imaging anatomy atlas of the knee, ankle, and foot employs both high quality images and beautiful anatomic illustrations.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a highly efficient and rich resource for busy practicing clinicians to assist them in rapid and accurate image interpretation. It definitely plays an important role as minute details become more and more important to surgeons and cross-sectional imaging resolution improves nearly daily. The book exceeds the author's stated objectives.
Audience: It seems to be geared towards busy radiologists at any level who are called upon to assist in determining patient management by localizing pathology. Dr. Manaster is a highly respected musculoskeletal radiologist whose mastery of musculoskeletal anatomy is evident throughout.
Features: The book deftly covers radiographic, CT, and MR anatomy of the musculoskeletal system using different imaging planes and correlation with amazing, colorful illustrations. What I appreciate most about this atlas is the inclusion of mirror images of both the left and right sides on opposing pages making the need to mentally flip an image in one's mind a thing of the past. I also appreciate the included angles/measurements (which I can hardly ever remember) and normal variants sections which assist tremendously in making accurate diagnoses. Lastly, I found the "needle approach" images quite useful, especially as radiologists are being asked to participate in pain management procedures with increasing frequency. The only relatively minor omission is the lack of MR arthrography images, but the need to include such images is debatable.
Assessment: This atlas is an excellent core reference tool for busy radiologists. It is filled with high-resolution 3T MR images and glorious color illustrations that are unparalleled in musculoskeletal imaging atlases that I have used. It is not hard to imagine that every busy MR reading room will have a copy in the not too distant future. Well done!
