Atlas of Orthopedic Pathology

with CD-ROM

This authoritative resource illustrates and discusses the pathologic, radiographic, and differential diagnostic aspects and clinicopathological correlations for a full range of neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions of the bones and joints. A bulleted, outline format makes reference quick and easy, and a bonus CD-ROM—new to this edition—offers all of the book’s illustrations in electronic format.

  • "To turn the pages of this largely pictorial tome, is to wonder at the brilliance of the photomicrographic reproduction (many reminiscent of the designs on William Morris wallpaper), the clarity of the radiographs and the breadth of permutations of tumour-like disease. It is clear the that the work comes from a Centre of Excellence."
    Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, August 2009

    "An exceptionally well presented concise guide. The book consists of wide range of clinical, radiological and pathologic descriptions accompanied by radiographs, photographs of gross appearances and histological pictures of various orthopaedic pathological conditions", March 2013
