E-BOOK DESCRIPTION
It is my pleasure to present the third edition of the textbook, Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound. Since the last edition, there have been further advances in the clinical applications of musculoskeletal ultrasound and related research. Scanning techniques and protocols have also been refined with improved knowledge of anatomy as seen with ultrasound. This revision provides an update of important clinical applications and scanning techniques, based on progress in the field and relevant peer-reviewed publications. This third edition includes nearly 400 new images, including color photographs and color illustrations. The organization of the textbook is similar to prior editions. New to this edition is the inclusion of Chapters 1 and 2 in hard copy form, which provides an introduction to musculoskeletal ultrasound and basic pathology concepts, respectively. Chapters 3 through 8 review anatomy, scanning technique, and common pathology of each specific joint and regional anatomy, including the shoulder; elbow; wrist and hand; hip and thigh; knee; and ankle, foot, and lower leg, respectively. To illustrate scanning technique, photographs show transducer placement and corresponding ultrasound images show resulting anatomy.

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.
