Skeletal Imaging: An Atlas of the Spine and Extremities is a clear, comprehensive, reference for clinicians, radiologists, and residents interpreting images of musculoskeletal and orthopedic disorders. It focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system. For each skeletal region, coverage includes normal developmental anatomy, fractures, deformities, dislocations, infections, hematologic disorders, and more. Joint and bone disorders are illustrated through more than 2,000 crisp radiographs, CT scans, MR images, bone scans, and conventional radiographic films.
• Chapters are specifically dedicated to one anatomic region, increasing research efficiency, expediting analysis of skeletal images, and improving diagnostic accuracy. Over 180 summary tables condense important clinical and imaging features of conditions.
• Illustrations of normal ossifications centers at various ages show the reader normal anatomy of each joint throughout childhood and adolescence. Quick-reference tables focus on the clinical and radiologic features of major skeletal disorders.
• Fractures, dislocations, and subluxations are clearly illustrated so clinicians know exactly what to look for when examining trauma patients.
