Overview

The first book ever published to combine the full range of clinical examination techniques with standard radiological imaging studies of the musculoskeletal system, this is a key clinical tool for all orthopedic residents and specialists. You will find dozens of representative imaging studies (including arthrograms, ultrasonography and MRI) integrated with physical examination tests -- offering a truly unique approach to reaching an accurate diagnosis.Special features include:* Tips for performing a standard physical examination in different areas of the body* Directions for patient positioning during radiographic studies to obtain optimal results* How to select the best test to confirm a diagnosis in the extremities, spine or pelvis* Specific technical guidelines for performing key diagnostic imaging testsIn light of the many new clinical tests and imaging modalities now in use, it is almost impossible for any individual examiner to be familiar with the complete spectrum of diagnostic options available. This book provides the quick orientation clinicians need as they work through the standard examination for each joint, pointing out appropriate imaging studies throughout. Useful and practical, it is a book specialists will reach for frequently in their daily practice.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Edward Abraham, MD(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description:This book presents information on the diagnosis of musculoskeletal disorders by stressing a thorough history taking, physical examination, and ancillary tests.
Purpose:The authors have not stated the purpose of the book. However, it is obvious that they are presenting a systematic way to evaluate orthopedic conditions by stressing the importance of the role of the clinician and imaging techniques.
Audience:The book is written mainly for orthopedic surgeons and residents. Other allied medical professionals such as physical and occupational therapists are going to find this work most helpful. All but one contributor are from Germany and they all hold senior orthopedic appointments in their respective institutions.
Features:This is an English translation of the original German versions published in 1995 and 1996. The contents are divided into nine anatomical sections. Each section covers the clinical examination, radiology, ultrasound, arthrography, nuclear medicine studies, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. More emphasis is placed on imaging modalities. Each chapter is well written and supported by numerous excellent and most useful figures. Treatment is not covered here.
Assessment:This is perhaps the best work I have read in recent years on the subject. The chapters are thorough and superbly illustrated. The section on the shoulder is particularly outstanding. I very highly recommend this textbook to all orthopedic surgeons and residents. All medical science libraries are encouraged to purchasethis outstanding book.
From The Critics
Emphasizing the importance of combining knowledge gained from patient history and physical examination with that gained from more technological diagnostic tools, Castro (supervising physician, M√ľnster Orthopedic Research Institute, Germany) and contributors present the proper diagnosis of orthopedic problems. Nine chapters are devoted to the major anatomical areas of concern and present information on the use of radiographs, ultrasound, computed tomography, arthography, nuclear medicine studies, and other tools and techniques.
