Overview

This volume will provide an algorithmic approach to sports-injury imaging by discussing the cost benefits and efficacy of the various imaging modalities. Written for practicing physicians in sports medicine—including primary care, orthopaedic and other disciplines—this book will provide practical answers to common imaging questions like these: 'What is the injury? What is the best imaging modality and why? How do I order these images, and in what sequence? How do I interpret these images and apply them to diagnosis and management?'

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carol L. Andrews, MD (Tower Imgaging Medical Group)
Description: This well-illustrated textbook is presented with the goal of providing both the primary care and sports medicine specialist with a framework for understanding and determining the appropriate imaging approach to the injured athlete.
Purpose: The authors state, correctly, that there is a "remarkable array" of choices available in imaging and evaluation. This book is edited by four authors well-known in their specialties with contributions from a wide variety of specialists including radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, and physiatrists.
Audience: The book would serve as a useful introductory text to medical students and possibly to junior residents in the above named specialties
Features: Introductory chapters are presented in epidemiology and the basic physics of radiologic imaging. The remainder of the book is organized according to organ systems and the topic treatment is variable. Several chapters address the anatomy, mechanisms of injury, and imaging issues of a given anatomic region while others take a "shotgun" approach to causes of pain and what different pathologic entities look like radiographically.
Assessment: The chapter on radiology imaging is too basic and physics-based to be useful to the sports medicine clinician. The writing style and chapter structure are both inconsistent and limit the usefulness of this book to the stated audience. Many of the references used in various chapters are 15 to 20 years old, though references as current as 1994 are listed.

Overviews musculoskeletal imaging techniques and their use for primary care and specialist physicians, discussing the relevant science of imaging techniques and specifics of how to order each test in conjunction with interpretation of images. Analysis of imaging studies is supplemented with treatment plans based on results of testing ordered. Organization of chapters is based on anatomy, with chapters on areas including head, soft tissue, shoulder, elbow, pelvic, leg, and foot injuries in sports, plus chapters on epidemiology of sports injuries, and basic principles of medical imaging and applications to sports medicine. Includes b&w photos and images illustrating common conditions found in sports medicine. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
