About this book


This volume provides an updated review of imaging abnormalities in orthopedic sports injuries. The first part of the book contains background information on relevant basic science and general imaging principles in sports traumatology. The second part comprises a topographic discussion of sports injuries. Each chapter highlights the merit of different imaging techniques, focused on a specific clinical problem. In the third part, natural history, monitoring and follow-up by imaging are discussed. This well-illustrated book will be of value for musculoskeletal radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, sports physicians and everyone else involved in sports medicine.

From the reviews:

"This book represents an impressive contemporary overview of how imaging should be used in sports injuries. … The book is clearly structured and well balanced. Each chapter is up-to-date, providing advanced concepts. … The text is easy to read. … Well selected references complete each chapter. … Editors, authors and publishers have to be congratulated for their remarkable success. The book can be highly recommended. It should be part of any departmental and hospital library." (Prof. Dr. Ljubomir Diankov, Osteologiai Közlemenyek, Issue 1, 2007)

"This book aims to provide a comprehensive overview of all imaging techniques currently used in the evaluation of patients who have sustained sports-related injuries. Although the intended audience is radiologists in training and those in practice, this book would also be informative to nonradiologists who are involved in the care of these patients. … a valuable library resource for any musculoskeletal radiologist, orthopedic surgeon, sports physician, or anyone else involved in the field of sports medicine."(Justin Q. Ly, Radiology, Vol. 250 (2) 2009)
