Musculoskeletal ultrasound forms an important tool for physicians working in this field of medicine and there is increasing expectation from patients that they will be provided with a safe, guided procedure if clinically warranted. While an understanding of ultrasound imaging is essential for prior to undertaking ultrasound guided procedures, there are few practical guides that provide practicing clinicians with a quick reference when faced with a procedure. Ultrasound Guided Musculoskeletal Procedures provides the support practitioners need based on practical, first-hand experience of a Sports and Exercise Medicine Physician who trained in musculoskeletal sonography. Over the years and with much practice, the lessons learned, and techniques developed are summarized in this text with relevant pictures guides those undertaking the procedure. Written with trainees and practitioners in mind, by Dr. Sirisena who teaches both novice and experienced in ultrasound imaging or procedures.
