About this book


This highly illustrated, practical book provides a systematic approach to the radiological assessment of all significant sports injuries. Imaging features are presented along with discussion of the influence of these findings on treatment and image-guided interventions. For each anatomical area, the underlying biomechanical features that produce injury are explored. All imaging modalities are featured, with emphasis on MRI, MR arthrography, CT, and ultrasound. A concise guide to sports injuries, this book will help clinicians quickly identify the appropriate imaging techniques to best serve their patients.

This up-to-date resource is an excellent, high-yield resource for radiologists, emergency radiologists, orthopedists, and sports medicine professionals. International experts provide guidance as to how sports injuries occur and how to recognize relevant imaging findings.
