Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Richard Tupler, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book sets out the essential, basic facts of musculoskeletal magnetic resonance imaging, covering normal anatomy, the most common abnormalities, and diseases that are unique to the anatomic sites, as well as individual joints and general disease processes. Imaging tips and suggested protocols serve to complete the book. To facilitate learning, the book is logically organized starting with the essential components of the relevant anatomy, followed by descriptions of the abnormalities affecting the individual structures.
Purpose: An easy to understand, practical guide to musculoskeletal MRI for both residents and clinicians, this book includes the all of the practical information necessary in order to perform quality MRI, and provides enough detail to be useful and essential while remaining eminently readable.
Audience: This is appropriate for radiologists or clinicians interested in gaining a deeper practical understanding of the field. This book succeeds both as a reference to keep by the view box and as a textbook to be read from cover to cover.
Features: This second edition incorporates new imaging techniques and updates, including 3T, while maintaining the format of the highly successful original edition. New protocols and new illustrations are included in this 400+ page book that uses 600 detailed images. Boxes of information summarize important or difficult to understand or remember points and provide a quick reference.
Assessment: Aimed primarily at residents, fellows, and those involved with musculoskeletal radiology, this edition remains appropriately compact and well illustrated. This book can be confidently recommended to all those who are first learning how to interpret musculoskeletal MR images (ideal for residents and fellows) and for those who deal with musculoskeletal MRI on a routine basis. It uses its highly successful first edition format as a platform for continued success and usefulness. It will surely find its place in the hands of a majority of radiologists.
From the Publisher
“I recommend Musculoskeletal MRI enthusiastically and without hesitation to any radiologist or clinician interested in gaining a deeper practical understanding of this field. This book succeeds both as a reference to keep by the view box and as a textbook to be read from cover to cover.”
