Muscle Imaging in Health and Disease / Edition 1

This comprehensive, meticulously illustrated volume effectively demonstrates the role of CT, MRI, MRS, ultrasonography, conventional radiography and nuclear medicine in evaluating the integrity and quality of skeletal muscle. Besides reviewing all imaging modalities, the book presents the complete spectrum of muscle physiology and pathophysiology - both normal and diseased. Highly-detailed illustrations highlight the in-depth survey of clinically significant muscle abnormalities. Radiologists will especially value the unique reference atlas of MR images of normal skeletal muscle. By incorporating exercise and MRI, advantage is made of the natural contrast between active and inactive muscle to remarkably enhance the definition of individual muscle anatomy. Certain to become an essential reference.
