Thoroughly updated and revised, the new edition of this classic 2-volume set offers a comprehensive description of the role of diagnostic imaging (including plain film, computed tomography, isotopic bone scanning, and magnetic resonance imaging) in the evaluation of skeletal injury. The 3rd Edition includes the latest advances in the use of CT, especially helical CT, in the assessment of trauma to the skull, face, spine, pelvis, and various sites in the appendicular skeleton.

• Discusses the epidemiology of fractures; the classification of various special fractures, including chondral, osteochondral, stress, and pathologic; and the patient with multiple injuries.

• Explores the effects of various traumatic childhood injuries upon the growing skeleton.

• Offers a chapter on the skull, focusing on differential diagnosis as it relates to congenital anomalies.

• Addresses diagnostic pitfalls for a complete range of common, rare, and acute injuries.

• Presents the latest information on the role of helical CT and MR imaging in the evaluation of acute skeletal trauma.

• Provides nearly 3000 radiographs, CTs, and MR images along with a wealth of line drawings-richly depicting the principal features of all common fractures and dislocations.

• Incorporates contributions from 28 new authors, providing expert perspectives on all of the latest techniques.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Elliot Pinero, M.D.(University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is the latest installment by Dr. Lee F. Rogers on the radiographic evaluation of skeletal trauma. It has been 10 years since the last edition (1993), and this latest update demonstrates significant progression in the evaluation of skeletal trauma that coincides with the enormous changes in the modalities used for skeletal imaging.
Purpose: As the title denotes, the purpose is to guide readers in radiographic evaluation of skeletal trauma. This includes, as evidenced in the prior two editions, plain film radiography. However, this new edition adds more information on the use of newer and faster modalities such as helical computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for evaluation of skeletal trauma. Due to the nature of our fast-paced society and increasing physical activity, there has been an increase in trauma related injuries, therefore necessitating the need to develop better skeletal trauma reading skills. Hence the need for literature of this nature. Dr. Rogers has met these objectives in a very clear and concise manner.
Audience: As in prior editions, the target audience is vast. First and foremost, it is a vital part of basic radiologic education for first year residents in radiology. However, it is also of importance to all radiology residents and attendings. It is also important for emergency room staff and orthopedic personnel. Medical students and primary care physicians would also benefit from the book in their everyday practice. The influence of these books is far reaching and Dr. Rogers is a noteworthy and credible authority on the matter. For completeness, he has enlisted the help of acknowledged experts in musculoskeletal imaging to account for the newer modalities.
Features: The two-volume set contains complete radiologic evaluation of skeletal trauma, including all body parts from the head down to the toes. In this new edition, there is more CT and MRI imaging evaluation for skeletal trauma. However, not only does the book cover evaluation of skeletal trauma, but also the anatomy, biomechanics, fracture healing, and treatment of the skeletal system. Most, if not all, the areas are well covered. Of particular interest, the evaluation of cervical spine trauma is particularly good and of vast importance. The photographs and illustrations are clear and easy to understand. The addition of MRI and CT images is very helpful and informative. I find it difficult to notice any shortcomings worth mentioning.
Assessment: This is a wonderful, invaluable, and necessary addition, not only to any radiological library, but the library of many other medical departments. This third edition is a great example of the constant changes and further development in the imaging modalities used in the evaluation of skeletal trauma, and as such, has no parallel.
