The next best thing to a mentor in learning how to understand the technique and interpretation of MR imaging of the lower extremities.

Features of this book include:

  • a double-page concept, with schemes and illustrations on the right
  • explanatory text on the left
  • a total of more than 1000 MR images and illustrations provide a comprehensive visual overview of the normal and pathologic musculoskeletal tissues of the lower extremities
  • practice cases are included to test what one has learned from the book

When you have worked through this book you will understand why certain exams are performed; why certain protocols are used; what you actually see; what is normal, artifact or pathologic; which clinical context is involved; and what your reactions should be.

This is a marvelous introduction to MR imaging of the lower extremities, and is particularly valuable for the way it integrates imaging findings with the clinical context.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brian D Petersen, M.D.(University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is a compendium of images and figures that graphically illustrate imaging strategies and pathologies encountered in MRI of the lower extremity.
Purpose: The goal, according to the author, is to center understanding of MRI of the lower extremity, not in pathology, but in the signs that we see at the viewbox. We see what it looks like...what is the pathology? As opposed to, we know the pathology...what does that pathology look like? Although it is important to be familiar with the imaging of pathology so that it can be recognized, a purely image-based atlas/text is a worthy undertaking. I found it fun to read through with good images and many, albeit sometimes confusing, cartoons and figures.
Audience: The book is directed to the "radiologist and those interested in radiology." The format is a bit simplistic for the practicing MSK radiologist, but would be fantastic for a general radiologist who ventures only occasionally into MRI of the lower extremity. This is one of the best introductory MRI books for residents with plenty of pictures, figures, and basic anatomic detail.
Features: The book aims to, in an image-guided fashion, address imaging protocols and pathology regarding MRI of the foot, ankle, knee, and hip. The strength of the book is in the multitude of high quality images and the "image before pathology" method that pervades the book. The first two chapters are not particularly useful and many of the MSK general imaging guidelines are repeated in the chapters for specific pathologies.
Assessment: The book is of use to those beginning training in MSK radiology, radiology residents on MSK service, and those general radiologists who occasionally interpret MRI of the lower extremity. The tables, figures and images are of high quality but can, at times, be confusing. However, there is no comparable book that I know of that centers so purely on the imaging to lead to pathologic diagnosis with regard to MRI of the lower extremity.
