Identification of Pathological Conditions in Human Skeletal Remains provides an integrated and comprehensive treatment of pathological conditions that affect the human skeleton. There is much that ancient skeletal remains can reveal to the modern orthopaedist, pathologist, forensic anthropologist, and radiologist about the skeletal manifestations of diseases that are rarely encountered in modern medical practice. Beautifully illustrated with over 1,100 photographs and drawings, this book provides essential text and materials on bone pathology, which will improve the diagnostic ability of those interested in human dry bone pathology. It also provides time depth to our understanding of the effect of disease on past human populations. Comprehensive review of skeletal diseases encountered in archeological human remains More than 1100 photographs and line drawings illustrating skeletal disease including both microscopic and gross features Based on extensive research on skeletal paleopathology in many countries for over 35 years Review of important theoretical issues in interpreting evidence of skeletal disease in archeological human populations

Palaeopathology of Children: Identification of Pathological Conditions in the Human Skeletal Remains of Non-Adults provides archaeological examples of pathological child remains with varying degrees of disease manifestation, and where possible, presents illustrations of individually affected bones to help with identification. The structure and inclusion of photographs and summary diagnostic tables make this suitable for use as a textbook. Each chapter includes a table of international archaeological cases collated by the author from published and unpublished literature. Child skeletal remains come in a variety of different sizes, with bones appearing and fusing at different times during growth. Identifying pathology in such unfamiliar bones can be a challenge, and we often rely on photographs of clinical radiographs or intact anatomical specimens to try and interpret the lesions we see in archaeological material. These are usually the most extreme examples of the disease, and do not account for the wide degree of variation we may see in skeletal remains. Provides a comprehensive review of the types of pathological conditions identified in non-adult skeletal remains Contains chapters that tackle a particular disease classification Features for each condition are described and illustrated to aid in the identification

Im ersten Skelettband werden die verschiedenen Untersuchungstechniken ausführlich vorgestellt. Es folgt eine umfangreiche Darstellung der Skelettszintigraphie. Hier wird besonders auf für bestimmte Krankheitsentitäten hochspezifische Muster und deren klinischen sowie radiologischen Hintergrund (Projektionsradiographie, Computertomographie und Magnetresonanztomographie) synoptisch eingegangen. Die traumatologischen Kapitel beinhalten aktuelle Darstellungen der gesamten radiologischen Diagnostik in der Traumatologie einschließlich sämtlicher gebräuchlicher Frakturklassifikationen unter Berücksichtigung der Mehrzeilen-Computertomographie.

Research Methods in Human Skeletal Biology serves as the one location readers can go to not only learn how to conduct research in general, but how research is specifically conducted within human skeletal biology. It outlines the current types of research being conducted within each sub-specialty of skeletal biology, and gives the reader the tools to set up a research project in skeletal biology. It also suggests several ideas for potential projects. Each chapter has an inclusive bibliography, which can serve as a good jumpstart for project references. Provides a step-by-step guide to conducting research in human skeletal biology Covers diverse topics (sexing, aging, stature and ancestry estimation) and new technologies (histology, medical imaging, and geometric morphometrics) Excellent accompaniment to existing forensic anthropology or osteology works
