Musculoskeletal Ultrasound, How, Why and When
As ultrasound is used more widely by a range of healthcare professionals as a successful imaging tool for musculoskeletal conditions, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound demystifies the technique for students and practitioners who do not necessarily have specialised knowledge in this area.
The text is written at a level suitable for both students and more experienced practitioners, and has been edited by experienced sonographers working in consultant practice and education. It covers basic ultrasound anatomy and normal variants, common pathology, how to report, and differential diagnoses processes.
With contributions from leading musculoskeletal sonographers and a physiotherapist, and with input from radiology and rheumatology, this book provides a rounded, evidence-based resource for anyone wishing to incorporate musculoskeletal ultrasound into their practice.
