Description

Kinematic MRI refers to imaging a joint through a range of motion to examine the interactions between the soft tissue and osseous anatomy that comprise the joint. Kinematic MRI techniques were developed because various pathologic conditions are dependent on the specific position of the joint or in response to loading or stress. Importantly, static-view MRI examinations often miss abnormal findings because the joint is not assessed through a range of motion. Accordingly, the functional information obtained using kinematic MRI frequently serves to identify the underlying abnormality or to supplement the information acquired with standard MR imaging techniques.

Kinematic MRI of the Joints is the first textbook on this important, emerging clinical MRI application. For each joint, it presents pertinent functional anatomy, kinesiology, and clinical information; describes the kinematic MRI protocol and technique; explains the normal kinematics; and provides a thorough presentation of the pathokinematics. Multiple case examples illustrate the usefulness of kinematic MRI of the joints for diagnosis or elucidation of pathologic conditions.

Each section of this book is co-authored by an leading musculoskeletal radiologist orthopedic surgeon as well as by an academic-based physical therapist/biomechanist.

Reviews

"This volume brings together 28 contributing authors who are experts in kinesiological and magnetic resonance image (MRI) scanning…The text is well-written…An excellent, cross-referenced index is also provided…what sets this book apart from other texts on MRI analysis is its focus on dynamic, and therefore functional, analysis compared with the traditional "static" approach."

- Physical Therapy, March 2002

"…the editors are to be commended for a fine compilation of research in this important and evolving field of study. This book will stimulate future applications of MRI in the study of biomechanics and kinesiology and will provide the clinical radiologist with a greater appreciation of the role of abnormal biomechanics in joint disease."

- Timothy Mosher, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, Pennsylvania

"This is the first and most complete effort to describe joint mechanics in a clinically relevant way. The information should be useful to all radiologists who do musculoskeletal imaging, whether or not they do MR work. The references are comprehensive. This work is unique in our field… 3 Stars."
