Part of the brand-new Expert Differential Diagnoses series, this unique print-and-electronic reference will guide radiologists toward logical, on-target differential diagnoses based on key imaging findings and clinical information. The book presents the most useful differential diagnoses for the musculoskeletal system, grouped into three categories: anatomy based, image based (radiograph/CT, MR, ultrasound, nuclear medicine), and clinically based. Each differential diagnosis includes at least eight clear, sharp, succinctly annotated images; a list of diagnostic possibilities sorted as common, less common, and rare but important; and brief, bulleted text offering helpful diagnostic clues. The companion online Amirsysr e-Book AdvantageT provides additional annotated images.
