Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This second edition is published a decade after the 1982 first edition. It is the most comprehensive source available for information about the radiology of skeletal trauma. Radiographs are emphasized as the first images obtained in almost all patients. This edition, however, liberally discusses and illustrates the usefulness of CT, MRI, and scintigraphy in the diagnosis of acute skeletal injuries.
Purpose: The author's goal is to provide a book that is thorough, includes all of the imaging methods available today, and is a practical reference for the physician responsible for trauma patients. These goals have been achieved. This book is organized to provide answers to questions arising in daily practice, and it is also complete enough to provide information on unusual and rare problems.
Audience: This book will be useful to all physicians who diagnose or treat patients with skeletal injuries. Residents and medical students will also find this book to be an accessible and authoritative resource. The author, a radiologist with broad experience and a talented writer, is highly qualified to write about skeletal trauma.
Features: The first 300 pages contain chapters on foundation subjects ranging from the epidemiology of trauma and polytrauma to biomechanics of fractures, radiographic technique, fracture treatment, and fracture healing. Chapters on specific injuries are then organized around the regional anatomy. Illustrations are pertinent, high quality, and provide a full gamut of the appearances of all common and uncommon injuries. Discussions are liberally augmented by lucid line drawings and pertinent tables. The text is very well referenced with citations through 1991. The table of contents and index allow for efficient tracking of specific subjects. The text is cohesive and complete. Each topic is organized in the same logical way with anatomy and imaging methods preceding in-depth discussions of individual fractures, followed by discussions of radiologic diagnosis and pitfalls.
Assessment: This edition is twice the size of the first edition and contains more than 1000 new illustrations. This superb textbook is the best that exists on the subject. The new edition is expensive, but considering the quality and quantity of information, it is a bargain. A wealth of information is presented in an orderly and digestible way. Every medical library, departmental library, and facility responsible for trauma patients should have this book. Any physician who cares for trauma patients willfind this book to be valuable.
