About this book

This book is an entirely revised second edition of "Imaging of the Knee", published in 2003, and provides an up-to-date comprehensive review of imaging and pathologies 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 and orthopaedic surgeons.


“This textbook is a good clinical practical guide to have in the clinical environment when either protocoling, acquiring or reporting images of the knee joint. It also provides an insight into the most common pathologies and provides a list of differential diagnoses to consider. The book also includes normal anatomy of the knee joint and normal variants.” (Lisa Field, RAD Magazine, February, 2024)
