Beschreibung

  • Essential instruction on how to approach MRI studies in everyday practice
  • More than 800 MRIs and instructive illustrations to highlight key concepts related to normal anatomy and pathologic processes
  • Practical discussion of how other imaging modalities correlate with MRI
  • Clinical insights from leading orthopaedic surgeons and radiologists
  • Clinically oriented with carefully selected visual examples
Designed specifically for orthopaedic surgeons involved in the review of musculoskeletal MRI studies, this book enables clinicians to develop a systematic approach to the interpretation of these examinations. The initial chapters provide clinicians with a solid base of essential concepts, including the physics of MRI, various pulse sequences available for obtaining an MRI, and normal MRI anatomy. The authors then present an overview of core concepts of image interpretation and step-by-step guidance on how to determine which pulse sequences have been obtained, how to evaluate images, and how to correlate imaging findings with patient history and clinical presentation. The next sections of the book present protocols for acquiring and interpreting MRIs of the upper extremity, lower extremity, and spine. The concluding chapters cover special considerations for imaging articular cartilage and soft-tissue and bone tumors, correlation of MRI with other imaging modalities, and safety issues.

Features:
  • More than 700 MR images and 130 instructive illustrations to highlight key concepts related to normal anatomy and pathologic processes
  • Comprehensive review of MRI-detectable pathology that affects the upper extremities, lower extremities, and spine
  • Practical discussion of how other imaging modalities correlate with MRI
  • Clinical insights from leading orthopaedic surgeons and radiologists
An ideal resource for orthopaedic surgeons, residents, and fellows, this book provides essential instruction on how to approach MRI studies in everyday practice. With its practical coverage of clinical concepts, this book will also serve as a valuable reference for radiologists, rheumatologists, primary care physicians, and other specialists who care for patients with musculoskeletal conditions.
