The book opens by demonstrating the appearance of normal tissues before going on to illustrate the radiological features of pathological tissues. Having provided a framework for recognising normal findings and key abnormal signs, subsequent chapters summarise the radiological anatomy, clinical appearance and management of the most common musculoskeletal diseases, by body region. A final chapter demonstrates common systemic pathologies which are not easily grouped into a single region. All chapters are lavishly illustrated with high-quality, clearly labelled images.
Titles in the Pocket Tutor series give practical guidance on subjects that medical students and foundation doctors need help with “on the go”, at a highly affordable price that puts them within reach of those rotating through modular courses or working on attachment.
Highly structured, bite-size content helps novices combat the “fear factor” associated with day to day clinical training, and provides “just enough” for a new rotation.
• Highly affordable price and convenient pocket size format fits in back pocket!
• Logical, sequential content: the first principles of MSK imaging, then a guide to understanding a normal image and the building blocks of an abnormal image, before describing specific clinical disorders
• Clinical disorders are illustrated by high quality radiographs, ultrasounds, CTs and MRIs, with brief accompanying text that clearly identifies the defining features of the image
• Focuses on the conditions that medical students, junior doctors and trainees are most likely to see and be tested on
