With an emphasis on the accuracy and dynamic nature of no-radiation ultrasound, leading clinicians from around the world provide practical guidance on how to combine different multiplanar imaging modalities in the analysis and diagnosis of common musculoskeletal disorders.

Organized by body region, each of the 13 chapters follows a consistent, easy-to-reference format. The authors guide the reader through clinical indications, technical guidelines, and normal anatomy followed by information on degenerative diseases, inflammatory conditions, traumatic injuries, tumors, and various other musculoskeletal problems. Clear, high-resolution ultrasound images appear side by side with MRI, and in some cases CT, images to teach and train readers how to perform musculoskeletal ultrasound in clinical practice while simultaneously sharpening their diagnostic skills.


  • 864 high-quality illustrations, including full-color patient photographs and ultrasound images with MRI correlation to help readers understand how to make an accurate diagnosis
  • Bullet points that highlight key facts to facilitate rapid reading and review
  • Tips on technique, such as how to position the transducer to obtain optimal scans
  • Imaging pearls and pitfalls at the end of every chapter

As a handy reference for daily practice or as a review tool before exams, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound with MRI Correlations serves as an indispensable how-to manual for clinicians and residents in radiology, orthopedic surgery, and emergency medicine, as well as an accessible handbook for radiologic technologists.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward I Bluth, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This atlas-style book presents musculoskeletal applications of ultrasound with MR correlations.
Purpose: The purpose is to further popularize the use of ultrasound compared to MR in musculoskeletal imaging. In this time of cost-conscious healthcare, this is a worthy objective, which this book meets.
Audience: It is intended for sonographers, radiologists, and residents and staff in many specialties including emergency medicine, rheumatology, and orthopedics.
Features: The 13 chapters cover all areas of musculoskeletal imaging including evaluating shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, knees, and hips. They also cover interventional methods for biopsy and treatment. Although a chapter describes imaging of the muscles and soft tissues, they contain a limited number of examples of solid masses and bumps, with only a very short description of the factors used to discriminate these masses. This is a limitation considering how common referrals for these types of masses are.
Assessment: However, this atlas is a needed and useful addition to the literature for those who want to use ultrasound as well as MR in the evaluation of musculoskeletal disorders.
From the Publisher
This book is particularly useful for specialist radiology and othopedic registrars, general radiology consultants and radiographers or anyone starting MSK ultrasound.— Radiology Magazine
