Overview

Written by an acknowledged master in the field, Skeletal Radiology: The Bare Bones is a succinct, focused, clinically oriented textbook in musculoskeletal radiology. It presents the core knowledge base in musculoskeletal imaging necessary for radiology residents and practitioners. Major sections focus on trauma, tumors and tumor-like lesions, joint disease, and miscellaneous topics such as developmental and congenital conditions, metabolic, endocrine, and nutritional conditions, infection and marrow disease, postsurgical imaging, and interventional procedures. Emphasis is on understanding how abnormalities on images mirror the specific anatomic and pathophysiologic features of diseases.

This Third Edition includes all modalities in current use, including plain film, ultrasound, PET-CT, and much more MRI than previous editions. The book includes over 900 images selected from the teaching files and clinical case material at leading medical centers.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Richard Tupler, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: As implied by the title, this book covers the basic, essential facts of musculoskeletal imaging. It adopts a conceptual approach, focusing on musculoskeletal diseases and conditions rather than on specific imaging modalities.
Purpose: This clear and concise book covers the essentials of skeletal radiology, taking its place as a concise primer, addressing general principles through an applicable approach regardless of imaging modality. It is a solid resource for reviewing for the radiology board exam or for use as a reference during a skeletal radiology rotation, residency, or fellowship.
Audience: This should be of interest to orthopedic and rheumatology residents in addition to radiology residents. Experienced radiologists also would find it a great review while picking up additional scattered pearls.
Features: The book is divided into four primary parts that focus on trauma, bone lesions, joint diseases, and miscellaneous topics (among others, developmental, congenital, metabolic, and infectious conditions). A chapter on postsurgical imaging concludes the book. Critical aspects of most common skeletal diseases are described, supplemented by over 900 high-quality images, accompanied by useful illustrations, diagrams, and tables. This third edition includes more MRI and CT images, as well as newer digital radiographic images.
Assessment: This squarely qualifies as one of the leading books that would be a helpful resource for residents to carry during their training. Its readable format lends itself to repeated readings, and it has particular value during the day at the view box, where a quick review of relevant key facts with appropriate images may be most practical. Though it is relevant and timely for all levels of training, those in their early training or those looking for a quick review of topics while preparing for oral boards will find it particularly useful. It clearly establishes an appropriate framework for the study and practice of musculoskeletal radiology.

Explains the underlying conditions responsible for findings in musculoskeletal radiology, with sections on trauma, tumors, joint disease, and miscellaneous topics such as congenital conditions and postsurgical imaging. Emphasis is on general principles of skeletal radiology applicable regardless of imaging modality. Chapters on specific diseases and conditions discuss their clinical, pathologic, and physiological features and outline the approach to interpretation of radiographs, computed tomography, MRI, and skeletal scintigraphy. Includes many b&w illustrations. Useful as an introduction to musculoskeletal radiology and as a review for residents. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
