4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is a need to know reference to orient therapists to the role of imaging procedures....it is a useful resource and offers nice clinical pearls to apply the information presented."--Doody's Review Service
"...a very useful reference text for both the practicing physical therapist as well as the physical therapy student....The illustrations, and especially the CD-ROM, do an excellent job of depicting points brought up in the text and greatly enhance the clarity of the information. I have found the CD-ROM images to be valuable tools in patient education and in clarifying pathology for physical therapy students."--Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy
This unique book enables therapists to understand the various imaging technologies and weigh the benefits and drawbacks of each in the context of their own screening and evaluation process. It also serves as an indispensable resource for meaningfully discussing the results of these tests as part of the patient education process.
