Here’s everything Physical Therapists need to know about medical imaging. This comprehensive guide helps you develop the skills and knowledge you need to accurately interpret imaging studies and understand written reports. Lynn McKinnis, 2009 winner of APTA’s Helen J. Hislop Award for Outstanding Contributions to Professional Literature, guides you every step of the way. Begin with a basic introduction to radiology; then progress to evaluating radiographs and advanced imaging from head to toe. Imaging for commonly seen traumas and pathologies, as well as case studies prepare you to meet the most common to complex challenges in clinical and practice.
After introductory chapters on basic radiology, a chapter on how to evaluate radiographs and chapters on advanced medical imaging, the text is organized by anatomic regions and then by joints. At the heart of each anatomic chapter is a complete set of normal, routine radiographs that include tracings and point-by-point teaching observations. Each chapter ends with a discussion and offers imaging examples for commonly seen traumas and pathologies.
Once considered the domain of the physician, the field of radiology, and the patient information that could be obtained from an understanding of it, is now becoming more widely recognized as pertinent to the health professional's practice. Written for the non-radiologist, Lynn McKinnis's text grounds both students and practicing clinicians in the basic principles of imaging, radiographic evaluation of both normal and pathologic bone, and fractures. the author uses a systems approach, organizing chapters by major regions of human anatomy to providing reference points when viewing patient films.
Effectively perform and interpret musculoskeletal ultrasound with this concise, highly illustrated resource by Jon A. Jacobson, MD. Fully revised, this bestselling title covers all the essential details of musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging, providing a solid understanding of the technique and how to make accurate diagnoses. It takes a concise, clear, and step-by-step approach to all of the most common musculoskeletal ultrasound applications, with specific details on anatomy, patient positioning, scanning techniques, normal and abnormal findings, tips, and pitfalls. A succinct, highly accessible writing style makes information easy to understand. Common percutaneous ultrasound-guided musculoskeletal procedures are demonstrated, including transducer and needle positioning. Reader-friendly lists, tables, and images make reference quick and easy. Nearly 400 new ultrasound images show scanning technique, anatomy, and essential pathology. Newly revised information throughout helps you grasp essential concepts in diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound, ultrasound-guided musculoskeletal procedures, and much more. Thoroughly revised text, references, and images keep you up to date.
This edition presents expanded coverage of magnetic resonance imaging, one of the most important new areas in musculoskeletal radiology. It also contains a new chapter on imaging of miscellaneous lesions. In addition, it lists common differential diagnoses for easy reference.

Rely on this compendium of evidence-based criteria to confidently select the most appropriate imaging modality for the diagnostic investigation of the most commonly evaluated musculoskeletal conditions. Information on Radiographs, MRIs, CTs, and Diagnostic Ultrasound is condensed into easily understood bullet points, decision pathways, tables, and charts. The most valuable feature of this Handbook is the ability to see the entire spectrum of imaging available, and understand why one imaging modality is most appropriate at a given point in the diagnostic investigation. This Handbook includes all the evidence–based criteria currently available to guide a primary practitioner in the selection of the most appropriate imaging investigation for a given clinical condition: the American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria for Musculoskeletal Conditions, Western Australia’s Diagnostic Imaging Pathways for Musculoskeletal Conditions, and the Ottawa, Pittsburgh, and Canadian Clinical Decision Rules for ankle, knee, and cervical spine trauma.
Elsevier's 'Problem Solving in Radiology' series offers an instructional approach to common imaging questions. In this musculoskeletal volume, readers will find guidance on how to accurately read what they see and how to perform common office procedures, including arthrography and biopsy.
