Proper ultrasound examination and interpretation hinges on thorough knowledge of the relevant anatomy, artifacts, and technique. This book provides an excellent foundation by going beyond pathology and concentrating on these fundamentals. Basic physics and artifact recognition and prevention are outlined. Chapters review essential anatomy and include images and tables that highlight relevant bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. Sites of attachment and the best positions for examination are also noted. Technique is presented via a three-tiered approach and photographs of patients in the transducer position are matched with the resulting ultrasound images and complementary anatomical overlays.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book seems particularly relevant for musculoskeletal radiologists, ultrasonographers, radiology residents and fellows, rheumatologists, orthopedists, sports medicine physicians, and physical medicine/rehabilitation physicians. . This is an excellent reference with high quality illustrations and photos that will be effective in teaching the ultrasound anatomy of the musculoskeletal system and performance of a comprehensive ultrasound exam of any joint in the body."
