Description:

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.

Enables the reader to spot the challenging diagnostic features that can lead to misdiagnosis, including normal variants, artifacts and disease mimics. Over 90 highly illustrated cases containing over 300 clinical images in all modalities, presented in a standardized format, provide a practical reference for all radiologists.

D. Lee Bennett is the Vice Chair for Clinical Operations in the Department of Radiology at the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and the Musculoskeletal (MSK) Radiology Fellowship Program Director at the University of Iowa, Iowa, USA.

User’s Review:

As I wrap up fellowship and look back at the year — this book was very high yield and was a key tool in my development into an MSK radiologist. The content within includes material I will see every day in my practice as opposed to other texts which are filled with esoteric minutiae that I would be lucky to see once in my career.

Brought to you by esteemed authors from the University of Iowa’s Musculoskeletal Radiology department, Pearls and Pitfalls in Musculoskeletal Imaging: Variants and Other Difficult Diagnoses, is a worthy addition to your imaging library. Bang for your buck, you can’t beat it.

Section authors D. Lee Bennett (Elbow, Forearm, Hand, Hip and Pelvis, Thigh, and Foot), Georges Y. El-Khoury (Tumors/Miscellaneous), Kenjirou Ohashi (Arm, Leg, and Ankle), and Joong Mo Ahn (Shoulder and Wrist), cover a wider range of topics and diagnoses with which residents should familiarize themselves and should be well familiar to musculoskeletal and general radiologists alike.

A wide breadth of knowledge is covered in this concise readable book of 254 pages. Traps such as pseudotear of the triangular fibrocartilage, ulnar collateral ligament tear versus normal recess of the elbow, and red marrow versus tumor are clearly addressed, as are topics such as malignant and benign peripheral nerve sheath tumors, snapping hip, Mazabraud syndrome, ankle impingement, supracondylar process: ligament of Struthers, and numerous other topics.

Ninety-four cases in all, a wide gamut of musculoskeletal radiology is addressed in this very reader friendly style. Each case is approached as Image description, Importance, Typical clinical scenario, and finally Teaching Point. Each topic is usually addressed in ½ to 1 page of typed print and supplemented with various images from one to two pages additional; plain films, computed tomography, and MRI are typical, with diagrams added as necessary. The concise format fits a typical physician’s harried lifestyle and assists retention. Residents preparing for boards will find an array of useful and relevant material. Easily accessible at the monitor, you can familiarize yourself with an entity in under two minutes. The book will pay for itself in a single case. How can you beat that? Run, don’t walk, to acquire this book.
