This book covers the normal anatomy of the human body as seen in the entire gamut of medical imaging. It does so by an initial traditional anatomical description of each organ or system followed by the radiological anatomy of that part of the body using all the relevant imaging modalities. The third edition addresses the anatomy of new imaging techniques including three-dimensional CT, cardiac CT, and CT and MR angiography as well as the anatomy of therapeutic interventional radiological techniques guided by fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT and MR. The text has been completely revised and over 140 new images, including some in colour, have been added. A series of ‘imaging pearls’ have been included with most sections to emphasise clinically and radiologically important points. The book is primarily aimed at those training in radiology and preparing for the FRCR examinations, but will be of use to all radiologists and radiographers both in training and in practice, and to medical students, physicians and surgeons and all who use imaging as a vital part of patient care. The third edition brings the basics of radiological anatomy to a new generation of radiologists in an ever-changing world of imaging.

A complete, evidence-based guide to orthopaedic evaluation and treatment 5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "Major areas in orthopedics including anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics of movement are covered, along with a healthy dose of pathology that impacts patient function. Clinical pearls appear in highlighted boxes throughout, and camera icons indicate where video clips should be viewed. This second edition is more comprehensive than the first. Overall, this is a valuable reference that achieves a nice balance between detailing examination and treatment. Other books tend to be limited to addressing only one of these areas, but not both. This combination makes the book unique." -- Doody's Acclaimed in its first edition, this one-of-a-kind, well-illustrated resource delivers a vital evidence-based look at orthopaedics in a single volume. It is the ultimate source of orthopaedic examination, evaluation, and interventions, distinguished by its multidisciplinary approach to PT practice. Turn to any page, and you'll find the consistent, unified voice of a single author-a prominent practicing therapist who delivers step-by-step guidance on the examination of each joint and region. This in-depth coverage leads clinicians logically through systems review and differential diagnosis, aided by decision-making algorithms for each joint. It's all here: everything from concise summaries of functional anatomy and biomechanics, to an unmatched overview of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.
