Musculoskeletal ultrasound has seen a considerable surge in usage in recent years.
Its advantages are manifold.
Given adequate training of the examiner, it is very cost-effective,
there is no ionizing radiation to contend with, the scanners are normally highly portable,
and it enables certain interventional procedures to be performed with great accuracy
(therapeutic injections of local anesthetics and/or corticosteroids into areas of complex anatomy, e.g., the shoulder).
In this book, the anatomic areas are organized in chapter pairs,
of which the first part of the pair summarizes the diagnostic imaging
of that area from various angles so as to obtain the standard images necessary for reliable evaluation.
The second part covers the image-guided injection techniques themselves, including requisite equipment.
With the following key features:
Concise texts accompanied by typical US scans,
brilliant anatomic illustrations, and many photographs showing proper scanner placement.
Juxtaposes normal and pathologic anatomy for maximum understanding.
Detailed and lucid description of all common injection procedures, appropriately illustrated.
Resteghini’s Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound and Guided Injection: A Practical Guide
is an essential introductory reference for physical therapists, sports medicine physicians, orthopaedic practitioners new to the method, radiographers, and allied health professionals involved in the diagnosis and therapy of musculoskeletal conditions.
