From the Publisher

The author has done a nice job of presenting a vast array of information in a readily accessible format...a useful addition to the library of an experienced radiologist or clinician who wishes to remind him- or herself of the expected findings of a particular lesion and the planned workup. It may also prove useful to a resident studying for board examinations who wishes to quickly synthesize a large amount of material. ...This text meets the needs of its target audience quite well.--Radiology'Comprehensive...outstanding figures...Imaging Strategies of the Shoulder is an excellent reference text for information regarding the full spectrum of shoulder injury and pathology.' -- Journal of Orthopedic Sports Physical TherapyWell laid out and nicely illustrated. --RAD MagazineThe book is both a clinical and imaging atlas of the normal and pathological shoulder. Clear drawings and very good quality photographs explain the different aspects in conventional radiology and the images obtained with sonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. In each part, small synoptic tables deal with the goals of imaging and represent very good guidelines. The goal of this book is achieved. The term strategies in the book title has been well chosen. Shoulder surgeons and rheumatologists will enjoy this book as a very useful tool, but so will everyone concerned with should pain and diseases, and especially students and practitioners.--Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy

Reviewer: Travis Scott Graham, MD (University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: Imaging Strategies for the Shoulder is a first edition hoping to provide guidelines for evaluating diseases of the shoulder.
Purpose: The goal of this book is to provide a "stepwise diagnostic approach to shoulder diseases and to provide readily available guidance for daily clinical work." This is a worthy objective especially in the day and age of rising health care costs and the ever-increasing use of medical imaging. This book met its objectives.
Audience: This book is written as a guide for daily clinical work and, as such, is targeted to a wide audience including students, residents, practitioners, and even attendings. The author, while not known to me, seems a credible authority.
Features: This book covers a wide range of topics involving the shoulder. The pictures and illustrations provided are excellent. Layout of each page is very nice and although the print is small, spacing each of the three columns is a good idea. The Diagnostic Evaluation sections are particularly helpful as are many of the example images. In my opinion, the Goals of Imaging section is not particularly helpful.
Assessment: This book is a nice addition to the field of shoulder imaging. While particularly helpful for our clinical colleagues, this book may be somewhat limited for the more advanced reader. The illustrations and images are excellent and of high quality.
