Pearls and Pitfalls in Musculoskeletal Imaging: Variants and Other Difficult Diagnoses 1st Edition



When a radiological image includes unfamiliar features, how do you decide whether it is normal variation or pathological abnormality? If you decide an abnormality is present, can you make a diagnosis from the image alone? Pearls and Pitfalls in Musculoskeletal Imaging differentiates less common findings or normal variant mimickers from the more common similar appearing diseases, helping you make a quick and accurate diagnosis. Musculoskeletal disorders of the shoulder, upper extremity, pelvis, and lower extremity are described in over 90 cases, highly illustrated with over 300 radiographic, CT, MRI and ultrasound images. Each case follows a standard format: imaging description, importance, typical clinical scenario, differential diagnosis and teaching point, enabling you to locate key information quickly. Pearls and Pitfalls in Musculoskeletal Imaging will help you spot artifacts, mimics and other unusual conditions, enabling you to avoid misdiagnosis and prevent mismanagement. An essential diagnostic tool for radiologists at every level.
