Practical. In-depth. Invaluable.


A guide to the diagnosis of tumors and
tumorlike lesions of bone and soft tissue using MRI.



This unique encyclopedic guide
takes the same approach you apply in clinical practice. It features fully illustrated
differential diagnosis tables organized according to MRI findings and
the locations of tumors. An in-depth reference section provides information on
each lesion. In addition, almost 3000 high quality images make this practical
text an invaluable tool in the diagnosis of common and rare tumors and other
disorders of the musculoskeletal system.


Features:



  • 20 differential diagnosis tables based on anatomic
    locations of lesions rather than disease
  • Fully illustrated reference chapters containing
    concise, detailed information for each lesion - from relative frequency and
    age ranges to MRI findings, treatment, and prognosis
  • Over 2900 state-of-the-art illustrations covering the
    wide range of imaging features for various lesions
  • An exceptional level of detail, helping you to
    differentiate between diseases and conditions that have similar appearances
  • Extensive cross-referencing to further up-to-the minute resources

This is the definitive guide to MRI of musculoskeletal tumors. Whether you need
a practical guide for day-to-day use or a comprehensive preparation tool for
board examinations - keep this text close to the workstation.
