In this text an interdisciplinary team of specialists in radiology, surgery, and rheumatology presents a practical guide to imaging of the hand. Complete with detailed discussion of the complex anatomy, common diseases, and injuries of the hand, this text covers examination techniques and state-of-the-art imaging modalities, including multiline spiral CR, with 2-D displays and 3-D reconstructions, and contrast-enhanced MRI with multi-channel, phased-array coils.
Designed to help clinicians develop the most effective strategies for their patients, Diagnostic Imaging of the Hand provides a systematic approach to understanding each disease, outlining pathogenesis and clinical symptoms according to a graduated diagnostic plan. More than 1,000 crisp, high-quality images and line drawings, summary tables, handy checklists, and a heavily cross-referenced appendix of differential diagnoses make this text an ideal reference for the clinician seeking the most up-to-date information on how to diagnose and treat disorders of the hand.
