Ultrasound is a technique particularly suited to the investigation of disorders in children. It is painless, safe and non-threatening. There are significant strengths and weaknesses of its use in the diagnosis of musculoskeletal disorders. This text describes the methods, findings and potential pitfalls of imaging where US is commonly used as the primary diagnostic method and where it is best as an adjunct to other imaging. The alternative imaging techniques including CT, MRI, scintigraphy, and plain radiography are described in detail where appropriate. The reader of this book should obtain a working knowledge of the potential advantages of US, whilst understanding when and where other forms of imaging are preferred. The authors have international reputations as researchers, clinicians, and teachers in their field.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

This book provides an excellent theoretical and practical reference to the major modalities in use, with especial importance given to ultrasonography.

A versatile tool for paediatric diseases.

This edition is bursting at the seams with high quality images to illustrate the various common pathologies encountered in everyday clinical practice.

[The editors'] experience is evident as each of the six chapters is easy to read and highly informative.

I was particularly impressed at how the authors promoted the use of ultrasonography.

This book is concise and well written and I think would be of great benefit to both generalists and specialists involved in the diagnosis of childhood diseases.

[RAD Magazine, December, 2005]

"European authors have been in the forefront of musculoskeletal ultrasound. … The book is divided into six chapters ranging from congenital and developmental disorders to trauma to intervention. … The images are well reproduced … . The ultrasound images are clearly labeled with obvious findings. The authors comment in each section about the care and preparations required to image children effectively." (Brent H. Adler, Pediatric Radiology, Vol. 35, 2005)
