This is an atlas of fractures, as demonstrated by x-ray images (radiographs and computed tomography). It is intended for the use of anyone with an interest in fractures. In Chapter 1, we illustrate fractures and dislocations involving the hand. In Chapter 2, we show fractures and dislocations of the wrist, including fractures and dislocations of the individual carpal bones. Chapter 3 begins with forearm injuries, continues with elbow fractures and dislocations, and ends with humeral shaft fractures. In Chapter 4, we illustrate fractures and dislocations about the shoulder and shoulder girdle. We show examples of fractures and dislocations of the spine in Chapter 5. Injuries of the pelvic ring are covered in Chapter 6, including fractures of the acetabulum and hip. In Chapter 7, we show injuries of the femoral shaft and knee. Chapter 8 covers injuries of the lower leg and ankle. In Chapter 9, we illustrate fractures and dislocations of the foot. Chapter 10 is devoted to fractures and dislocations of the face

The 369 cases in this atlas are arranged anatomically. In Chapter 1, we illustrate fractures and dislocations involving the hand, beginning with injuries to the distal phalanges of the fingers, continuing with injuries of the distal interphalangeal, proximal interphalangeal, and metacarpophalangeal joints, and ending with injuries of the carpometacarpal joints. In Chapter 2, we consider fractures and dislocations of the wrist, including fractures and dislocations of the individual carpal bones and combinations of carpal bones, perilunate injuries, radiocarpal injuries, distal radius injuries, and isolated distal radioulnar joint injuries. Chapter 3 begins with forearm injuries, including Galeazzi, Monteggia, and Essex-Lopresti fracture-dislocations, continues with elbow fractures and dislocations, and ends with humeral shaft fractures. In Chapter 4, we illustrate fractures and dislocations about the shoulder and shoulder girdle, including the proximal humerus, scapula, clavicle, and thoracic cage. We show examples of fractures and dislocations of the spine in Chapter 5, beginning with the craniocervical junction, including the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar regions, and ending with the sacrum. Chapter 6 begins with injuries of the pelvic ring and includes injuries of the acetabulum, hip joint, and proximal femur. In Chapter 7, we show injuries of the femoral shaft and knee. Chapter 8 covers injuries of the lower leg and ankle. In Chapter 9, we illustrate fractures and dislocations of the talus, calcaneus, midfoot, and forefoot, ending with the toes. Chapter 10 is devoted to fractures and dislocations of the face. References are placed at the end of the book.
There are 939 radiologic images presented in this atlas. Most of images are drawn from cases seen at Harborview Medical Center (Seattle, WA) the Level 1 Trauma Center that serves the states of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. Additional cases were drawn from the teaching collections of the University of Washington and from the teaching collections of the authors. A few images have been previously published and are used with permission.

  2. Great book, what a pity in epub format, but thanks for post !!!

  3. There is software on line that will allow epub to pdf conversion. It’s reasonable but not as good as some of the the professionally done pdf books.

    Anyway admin any luck with these :

    Body MR Cases, William Brant
    Gastrointestinal Imaging Cases, Angela Levy,
    Koenraad Mortele, and Benjamin Yeh
    Musculoskeletal Imaging Cases , Mark Anderson
    and Stacy Smith
    Nuclear Medicine Cases, Chun Kim
    Pediatric Imaging Cases, Ellen Chung

    Been asking for ages, some of the above have begun to appear on Amazon as ebooks. Can you help?

    Thanks again

  4. Is this book available by any chance?

    Atlas of Normal Roentgen Variants That May Simulate Disease 9th
