FUNDAMENTALS OF MUSCULOSKELETAL ULTRASOUND packs a big punch for such a compact book. It teaches the resident, clinician and even medical student, how to perform and read musculoskeletal ultrasounds, while highlighting the basic anatomy needed to perform and interpret ultrasounds and the salient points needed to make diagnosis. Key anatomy, concepts, diseases and even controversies are highlighted, rather than presenting a lengthy tome covering the A to Z's of musculoskeletal ultrasound.

Key Features

  • Find answers quickly in a simple, outline-style format featuring a succinct, highly accessible writing style -- emphasizing lists and tables -- that makes information easy to understand.
  • Deepen your understanding of the anatomy of peripheral joints so you can interpret ultrasound scans with confidence.
  • Differentiate one condition from another by examining the sonographic appearances of common musculoskeletal pathologies.
  • Correlate your knowledge of anatomy with the development of skilled ultrasound technique. This is an excellent primer for rheumatologists incorporating MSK US into their practices to evaluate and treat inflammatory joint diseases.
