Overview

This atlas vividly depicts the anatomy of the shoulder, ankle, hip, knee, wrist, and elbow as seen in magnetic resonance imaging, arthroscopy, and surgical dissection. Featuring over 500 MRI scans and over 200 full-color arthroscopic and surgical dissection photographs, the atlas shows direct correlations among MRI, arthroscopy, and surgical anatomy. MRI scans of cadaver joints are presented alongside arthroscopic and surgical dissection photographs of the same cadaver specimens. Each chapter begins with a commentary by an eminent orthopaedic surgeon on arthroscopy and surgical anatomy.MRI, Arthroscopy, and Surgical Anatomy of the Joints is also available on a multimedia CD-ROM.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, M.D.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This text presents photographs from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), arthroscopic surgery, and anatomical dissections to diagnose normal and abnormal structures about major extremity joints.
Purpose: The purpose is to help the orthopedic surgeon and radiologist correctly interpret the information seen on the MRI and arthroscopic views of extremity joints. These worthy objectives are thoroughly met.
Audience: The book is written for sports medicine and general orthopedic surgeons. Also, radiologists and residents in both specialties are important participants. The author is very well qualified to edit this book, and he is ably assisted by 14 contributors, most of whom are from the West Coast.
Features: This book is simply divided into six chapters based on anatomic site: shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot. The black-and-white and color illustrations are of excellent quality. Each picture is thoroughly labeled. Coronal, axial, and sagittal cuts are shown for each joint.
Assessment: This outstanding text focuses on sports medicine related diagnoses. General orthopedists dealing, for instance, with shoulder issues such as chronic subacromial bursitis, rotator cuff arthropathy, and acromioclavicular joint arthritis may not find answers in this work. Failure to recognize the subacromial bursa in any of the illustrations is a significant deficiency in the shoulder chapter. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the work and very highly recommend it to orthopedic surgeons and radiologists. Also, it is an important educational tool for residents in both specialties.
