Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Because Jacobson is the sole author of the book, the writing style is consistent and easy to read...In the preface, Jacobson states that his goal is 'to teach the fundamentals of musculoskeletal ultrasound in a concise and efficient manner.' He clearly achieved his objective. This book will appeal to both musculoskeletal and general radiologists and should be part of any radiology library." - AJR

"This edition includes significant improvements. The complete online version is searchable, with the references linked to PubMed abstracts. Greatly improved images, the addition of online content, particularly cine clips, and updated content make this an excellent resource. It is a valuable purchase even for those who own the first edition." - Yulia Melenevsky, MD(Medical College of Georgia) Doody 5 stars
