edited by Rethy K. Chhem, M.D., Ph.D. and Etienne Cardinal, M.D.
This practical guidebook provides an overview of the capability of musculoskeletal ultrasonography to assess disorders of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hands, hip, knee, ankle, and foot.
Each chapter provides a concise overview of anatomical structure, clinical indications, scanning techniques, and possible normal and abnormal findings. Guidelines and Gamuts in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound features a highly visual and easily accessible format that makes great use of tables, schematic diagrams, gamuts, and representative images.
Individual chapters address such topics as:
• Rotator and nonrotator cuff shoulder disorders
• Disorders of the elbow, wrist, adult hip, knee, and ankle
• Muscle and fascia
• Soft tissue masses: an algorithmic approach
• Soft tissue masses in pediatrics.
Guidelines and Gamuts in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound is an indispensable reference for radiologists and orthopedists and will also be of interest to rheumatologists, physical therapists, and physicians in sports medicine.
