About this book


Ultrasound is a highly effective imaging modality increasingly used for musculoskeletal evaluation by radiologists, general practitioners, sports medicine specialists, and orthopedic surgeons alike. Proper ultrasound examination and interpretation hinges on thorough knowledge of relevant anatomy, artifacts and technique. Musculoskeletal Ultrasound: Anatomy and Technique tackles the fundamentals of ultrasound, from physics, artifact recognition and essential anatomy to current issues, such as the growing interest in ultrasound of the peripheral nervous system. Hundreds of photographs, illustrations and anatomical images complement concise, easy-to-read text and handy tables. Transducer position and the corresponding ultrasound image are presented side-by-side during each joint examination. Perfect for any medical professional interested in this imaging modality, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound is the only reference that translates essential information from the page to the screen and into your clinical practice.
