Overview

Written by leading experts in MR imaging, orthopaedic surgery, and sports medicine, this volume is a comprehensive state-of-the-art guide to the use of MR imaging and MR arthrography in evaluating shoulder disorders. Coverage begins with a review of normal and variant shoulder anatomy, a practical summary of technical considerations in shoulder MR imaging, and a description of MR arthrography by one of the pioneers of this technique. Also included are reviews of shoulder biomechanics and clinical assessment of shoulder pain. Subsequent chapters cover specific clinical problems diagnosable by MRI—rotator cuff conditions, glenohumeral instability, bicipital tendon disorders (including SLAP lesions), the postoperative shoulder, arthritis, and miscellaneous disorders. Each chapter includes extensive descriptions of MRI findings and clinical and arthroscopic correlations. More than 650 illustrations, 73 in full color, complement the text.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David G. Disler, MD (Medical College of Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University)
Description: This comprehensive text of magnetic resonance imaging of the shoulder joint reviews anatomic, biomechanical, and clinical correlations with magnetic resonance imaging findings.
Purpose: The purpose is to cover the development of magnetic resonance imaging as applied to the shoulder joint emphasizing descriptive findings with close clinical correlation. The intended audience is all clinicians who evaluate patients with rotator cuff disease and instability.
Audience: The intended audience includes radiologists, orthopedists, and rheumatologists, though this text would best benefit radiologists.
Features: It is highly organized and includes detailed discussions of anatomic and technical considerations, and discussion of shoulder biomechanics as well as clinical evaluation of the painful shoulder. Subsequent chapters focus on magnetic resonance imaging findings in rotator cuff disease and glenohumeral instability. There are additional chapters on the assessment of the superior labrum, the long bicipital tendon origin, and the post-operative shoulder. The final chapters focus on arthritic changes in the shoulder as well as on various miscellaneous disorders including tumor assessment, avascular necrosis, infection, and nerve entrapment syndromes. While comprehensive, there is little overlap of material between chapters. Photographs and illustrations are of outstanding quality and emphasize details in the text. It is well organized; each chapter begins with an outline of the material to be covered. The text is easy to read and follows logically.
Assessment: The comprehensive nature of this book will greatly benefit all those who interact with patients who undergo magnetic resonance imaging for shoulder problems.
