Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Richard Tupler, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: A new addition to the bestselling Diagnostic Imaging series, this book is meant to be paired with its counterpart on trauma-related musculoskeletal issues to create a fully comprehensive reference.
Purpose: This book aims to be the most up-to-date, user-friendly musculoskeletal reference. It covers the spectrum of nontraumatic musculoskeletal diseases including arthritis, bone tumors, soft tissue tumors, congenital/developmental abnormalities, systemic diseases, infection, and metabolic disease affecting the musculoskeletal system. Complemented by concise and informative bulleted text, the fully annotated images depict nearly all nontraumatic musculoskeletal entities, making this a superior reference.
Audience: This is an indispensable reference tool for radiologists, musculoskeletal imagers, orthopedists, and other medical professionals.
Features: Like all the books in this series, this one covers topics with excellent graphics and case examples to highlight the bulleted text. The text follows the standard series format, discussing terminology used in describing the disease, imaging features and findings, differential diagnosis, clinical issues (including mention of treatment), a diagnostic checklist that contains specific imaging points, and a relevant reference list. With more than 300 diagnoses, thousands of images and graphics, and the most recent information and citations, this is a user-friendly musculoskeletal reference. One of the most appealing features is a table/chart summarizing the key facts of a particular disease, followed a detailed elaboration. The companion eBook provides additional access to hundreds more images and additional references.
Assessment: This exceptional resource deserves a place in every radiology library as an authoritative reference for any physician who regularly deals with imaging of musculoskeletal disorders.
