Musculoskeletal MRI covers the entire musculoskeletal system and related conditions, both common and rare. The text is neatly divided into sections based on the major anatomic divisions. Each section discusses anatomic subdivisions or joints, keeping sections on normal anatomy and pathologic findings close to each other, allowing radiologists to easily compare images of normal and pathologic findings.
With more than 4000 high-quality MR images, information is presented in an easy-to-read bulleted format, providing the radiologist with all the information required to make an informed diagnosis in the clinical setting. The new edition also includes a complimentary eBook as well as access to image downloads. Comprehensive and user-friendly in its approach, the book provides every radiologist, both consultant and trainee, with increased confidence in their reporting.

"This is just a great book. I have had it on my reporting desk for the last two months… The illustrations are just superb and the text clear, concise and appropriate… I would certainly recommend it for any radiologist with an interest in musculoskeletal MRI, including those new to the field and also the more experienced. For the pictures alone, which are just superb, it is worth going out and buying a copy"
