About this book


This volume provides an up-to-date and comprehensive review of imaging of the knee. In the first part of the book, the various techniques employed when imaging the knee are discussed in detail. Individual chapters are devoted to radiography, arthrography, computed tomography and CT arthrography, magnetic resonance imaging and MR arthrography, and ultrasonography. The second part then documents the application of these techniques to the diverse clinical problems and diseases encountered in the knee. Among the many topics addressed are congenital and developmental abnormalities, trauma, meniscal pathology, the cruciate and collateral ligaments, the postoperative knee, infection, arthritis, osteochondritis, osteonecrosis and tumors. Each chapter is written by an acknowledged expert in the field, and a wealth of illustrative material is included. This book will be of great value to radiologists, orthopedic surgeons and other clinicians with an interest in the knee.
