Having hit upon a recipe for success with the initial book in its Essentials series (Essentials of Musculoskeletal Care), the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons has enlisted a superb team of editors from the fields of orthopaedics and radiology to oversee the publication of Essentials of Musculoskeletal Imaging, a comprehensive yet concise reference text.Form follows function in this easy-to-use reference book. Organization and simplicity underscore the text, which is subdivided into eleven sections. Seven of the sections focus on specific anatomical areas (shoulder, elbow and forearm, hand and wrist, hip and thigh, knee and lower leg, foot and ankle, and spine), whereas the remaining four cover more general topics (imaging modalities, general orthopaedics, tumors, and pediatric orthopaedics). Within each section are systematically organized subsections replete with ICD-9 codes, synonyms, definitions, history and physical findings, "required" and "comprehensive" imaging options, special considerations, and pitfalls and differential diagnoses. Carefully selected diagnostic images, with a particular emphasis on conventional radiography and magnetic resonance imaging, superbly illustrate each condition.
