Overview

This highly illustrated, practical book provides a systematic approach to all significant sports injuries. Imaging features are presented along with discussion of the influence of these findings on treatment and image-guided interventions. For each anatomical area, the underlying biomechanical features that produce injury are explored. All imaging modalities are featured with emphasis on MRI, MR arthrography, CT, and ultrasound. A concise guide to sports injuries, this book will help clinicians identify the appropriate imaging techniques and treatments to best serve their patients.

This up-to-date resource is an excellent, high-yield resource for radiologists, emergency radiologists, orthopedists, and sports medicine professionals. International experts provide guidance as to how sports injuries occur and how to recognize relevant imaging findings.

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Vijay Jotwani, MD (Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description: This teaching guide and radiology atlas for sports medicine practitioners is organized into nine joint-specific chapters with additional chapters on postoperative imaging and ultrasound-guided injections.
Purpose: The purpose is to bring imaging findings together with the anatomy, biomechanics, pathophysiology, and clinical features of athletic injury. Acute injuries, overuse syndromes, and degenerative processes that occur in athletes are covered. The book presents the optimal imaging modality for each injury and makes readers aware of alternative imaging options.
Audience: This useful book was developed for both radiologists and sports clinicians. The author and contributors are musculoskeletal radiologists from the U.K. who are experts in the field.
Features: Each section begins with a review of anatomy and biomechanics followed by a brief review of the pathophysiology and clinical features for a majority of orthopedic sports injuries. Particularly clear MRI images with well-done captions as well as ultrasound, CT, and some operative images accompany the review of each condition. The strength of this book is in the way it explains anatomy, mechanism of injury, and injury classification prior to presenting the radiologic images. Diagrams accompany the anatomical review and tables summarize imaging findings for particular diagnoses. There are a few conventional radiographs (such as a Segond fracture knee x-ray) , but this modality is not discussed in detail. The focus is primarily on musculoskeletal MRI, but the book does not include an introduction to MRI fundamentals and the variety of images available (T1, T2, STIR, etc.).
Assessment: Although this book does not include as many images as other orthopedic radiology textbooks, nor is it as long, it is well laid out and teaches the interpretation of MRI particularly well. It provides a primer on musculoskeletal ultrasound findings, but learners will need to find additional resources on the interpretation of conventional x-rays. It is an ideal textbook to accompany a musculoskeletal radiology clerkship.
