Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Orthopedic Sports Medicine 2008th Edition

by Robert Pedowitz (Editor), Christine B. Chung (Editor), Donald Resnick (Editor)

This uniquely interdisciplinary book is a practical resource on orthopedic MR imaging that bridges the backgrounds of radiologists and orthopedic surgeons. Radiologists learn why surgeons order imaging studies. They also learn terminology that will help them tailor reports to the specialty. Orthopedic surgeons gain insight on when to order an MRI, how MRI affects decision making, and how to interpret images. Case studies also depict key clinical and exam points, supplemented by MR images and illustrations. Shorter sections highlight other anatomical areas, and additional chapters address diagnostic accuracy and imaging pitfalls.
