Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound 2nd Edition PDF
44.23 MB PDF
It is my pleasure to present the second edition of the textbook, Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound. While constructing this edition, I was amazed at how the field of musculoskeletal ultrasound has advanced in such a short time interval from the construction of the first edition. The goal of this edition is not simply to update the content but also to inform the reader about such advances in the field. The following is a short summary of the items that are new to this updated edition.
The organization of the textbook is similar to the prior version, focused on specific joints after a brief introduction and chapter on basic pathology concepts. Given the increased role of ultrasound in imaging-guided procedures, a new chapter has been added that reviews interventional musculoskeletal ultrasound. Because ultrasound has also emerged as an important tool in the evaluation of inflammatory arthritis and peripheral nerves, content related to these two topics was increased throughout all chapters. References have also been updated and about 40% of the images are new. In addition, color images are now integrated throughout the textbook.
An exciting addition to this textbook is the availability of online material via www.ExpertConsult.com. This has allowed an increase in the number of images and content for each chapter. Consequently, Chapters 1 (Introduction) and 2 (Basic Pathology Concepts) have become Webonly chapters to allow for the expansion of other chapters and the addition of the new interventional chapter in the hard-copy version of the textbook. The use of the Web for material has also allowed the addition of over 200 ultrasound imaging cine clips, which has significant educational benefit as they simulate real-time scanning. Lastly, a complete electronic version of this textbook will be available online at www.expertconsult.com.
It has been exciting to see the popularity and number of clinical applications of musculoskeletal ultrasound increase over such a short time period. With knowledge of anatomy and pathology as seen with ultrasound and proper scanning technique, musculoskeletal ultrasound can play a significant role in the evaluation of the musculoskeletal system.
