Overview

MRI has become increasingly useful in defining subtle injuries of the hand and wrist due to improved imaging techniques and new coil technology which permit visualization of the most intricate anatomical structures. MRI of the Hand and Wrist is the first dedicated text to chronicle the tremendous technological advances and new applications that have occurred in this area over the past five years. The emphasis is on MR anatomy, techniques for performing MR studies, and utility for specific clinical problems. Features include: comparisons of MRI with CT, ultrasound, and other modalities where appropriate; discussion of common technical and anatomic pitfalls; and specific applications organized by etiologies.
