Overview

&Changing the title from Orthopedic Radiology to Orthopedic Imaging in order to reflect the increasing use of such technologies as magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, and scintigraphy, Greenspan (radiology and orthopedic surgery, U. of California-Davis School of Medicine) retains an emphasis on conventional radiography as cost effective and fundamental part of orthopedics. Amply illustrated with line drawings, radiologic, and other images, the medical text aims to provide the reader with demonstrations of the most effective imaging techniques for evaluation of a wide range of disorders of the musculoskeletal system. There is a dual emphasis on the selection of the proper imaging technique and its subsequent interpretation. Thirty-one chapters are organized—after an introduction to imaging techniques and a discussion of bone formation and growth—by types of disorders and covers trauma, arthritides, tumors and tumor-like lesions, infections, metabolic and endocrine disorders, congenital and developmental anomalies. Each chapter includes a round up of "points to remember" and a list of further readings. New sections and illustrations have been added to almost every chapter. This fourth edition scores a perfect three ("essential cover title") in Doody's Core Titles in the Health Sciences. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
