Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound 3rd Edition PDF Free Download
Scanning protocols and sample reports are also included. In addition to common pathology of tendons, muscle, and ligaments, other topics include ultrasound evaluation of masses, peripheral nerves, and inflammatory arthritis. Chapter 9 provides an overview of ultrasound-guided musculoskeletal procedures, which is a very popular application of musculoskeletal ultrasound. Photographs show simulated needle and ultrasound transducer placement on a model to illustrate guidance techniques.
A new feature of the third edition are the updated online videos showing ultrasound cine clips, which simulate real-time scanning. Each of the over 200 videos are now individually narrated, where I describe the pertinent imaging findings using a pointer, similar to a lecture format. This enhanced feature will help emphasize the specific teaching points for each video. In addition to the videos, a complete electronic version of the textbook is available online via www. Expertconsult.com. It has been exciting to see the popularity and clinical applications of musculoskeletal ultrasound continue to increase. With knowledge of anatomy and pathology as seen with ultrasound and proper scanning technique, musculoskeletal ultrasound can play an important role in the evaluation of the musculoskeletal system.
