Overview

Guidelines and Gamuts in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

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
* Bone
* 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.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

This book will provide a guidebook for the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound to assess disorders of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hands, hip, knee, ankle and foot, and detect muscle and soft tissue pathologies as well as soft tissue masses. An overview of technical considerations, terminology, and equipment will also be provided. This book is intended to be a practical "cookbook" for clinicians.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David A. May, MD (Medical College of Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University)
Description: This is a review of musculoskeletal ultrasound applications, with emphasis on gamuts. The text is heavily illustrated and provides brief discussion of techniques.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to teach and promote musculoskeletal ultrasound to sonologists. In general, musculoskeletal ultrasound has not gained wide acceptance in clinical practice. It has the potential to complement and replace CT and MRI in many situations, producing savings in cost and patient radiation exposure. The book at least partially meets these goals.
Audience: The stated audience is practicing sonologists and sonographers. Another appropriate audience is radiologists interested in advanced musculoskeletal imaging, particularly musculoskeletal specialists. The contributors are experienced and respected in the field of musculoskeletal ultrasound.
Features: This is a survey of musculoskeletal ultrasound applications presented regionally by joints, and more generally by patient age. There are many excellent ultrasound images. The illustrations are well reproduced and labeled. The text contains clearly discussed, manageable gamuts for clinical and imaging findings. It would benefit from additional illustrations of normal and abnormal conditions; and more detailed review of specific scanning techniques would be helpful. The chapter on pediatric applications emphasizes non-musculoskeletal entities such as thyroglossal duct cyst.
Assessment: This text is a worthy addition to the musculoskeletal ultrasound literature. It will make a significant contribution in the promotion of musculoskeletal ultrasound.
From the Publisher
"...this outstanding textbook will be useful to anyone who wishes to perform clinical musculoskeletal US and interpret findings, regardless of the reader's level of experience...the price is very reasonable for a textbook of this scope and quality." —Radiology, July 1999

"...this text will function well as a practical working guide and reference..." —Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine, Vol. 18, 1999
