Is a radiological finding normal or pathologic? This "borderline" between the two states presents a daunting challenge to radiologists and orthopedic surgeons on a daily basis. Thieme proudly presents the updated and expanded fifth edition of the landmark text generations of physicians have used to differentiate borderline findings! Redesigned for optimal use, the book is organized according to diagnostic questions raised by clinical findings, radiographic findings, or both. You'll find all possible variants in five pathologic categories: anomaly; trauma; necroses; inflammation; and tumor. The book provides imaging examples of the entire body, from the skull base, shoulder, and clavicle, to lower spine, knees, and the feet. More than 4,200 high-quality illustrations give clear examples of potential findings. Key features of this historic text: * Illustrated with more than 4,200 outstanding drawings, photographs, and radiographs--nearly 4 per page!* Full coverage of pathologic conditions in their fully developed form, * Exhaustive analysis of borderline findings for both pediatric and adult cases * Valuable guidelines on integrating pathologic conditions with CT and MRI findings This book is the encyclopedic resource that will expand your knowledge of findings in skeletal radiology and enhance your diagnostic skills. No personal or professional library is complete without this new standard-bearer in the field! International acclaim for previous editions: "Excellent...the 'bible' of anomalies and variants...much worthwhile material...should be available to everyone interpreting skeletal radiographs..." --Radiology "This text must hold a record for a continuously relevant, frequently updated radiological reference...all of the illustrations are state-of-the-art...an invaluable references." --The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgeryshow more
