About this book


This book provides a comprehensive compilation of musculoskeletal ultrasonography (MSUS) fundamentals in pediatric rheumatology with emphasis on imaging techniques, normal anatomy, approaches towards standardization, and the spectrum of pathologic findings seen in the pediatric population. It examines the techniques and pitfalls of MSUS in pediatrics and compares sonoanatomy in pediatric patients versus adults. Chapters cover a range of anatomical sites, including shoulder and arm, elbow and forearm, wrists and hands, hip and thigh, knee and leg, and ankle and feet. The text also discusses the use of ultrasonography in juvenile inflammatory arthritic conditions and sports-related injuries. Finally, the book concludes with a summary of the recent advances in pediatric musculoskeletal ultrasonography. Featuring contributions from a large international group of leaders in the field, Pediatric Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography is an authoritative reference for pediatric and adult rheumatologists, sonographers, radiologists, physiotherapists, and orthopedic specialists.

“This book is mainly targeted at clinicians practicing paediatric rheumatology but is also suitable for radiologists and radiographers practising paediatric musculoskeletal imaging. … this is a well structured and illustrated book that is reasonably priced and a good addition to the library of a rheumatology or radiology department. It would benefit from better proof reading. I look forward to a second edition in the future and would like to congratulate the editors and authors for their efforts.” (Vijay Jayaram, RAD Magazine, June, 2020)
