For musculoskeletal pathologies, imaging-based measurements and classifications
are often used to determine disease state, treatment, and prognosis. The radiologist
is required to provide the requesting clinician with this information as part
of the report on findings and diagnosis.
This practical book offers readers to look up all diagnostic radiological measurement methods and classifications currently used in musculoskeletal radiology (apart from fracture classifications).
How the different measurements are performed is shown in over drawings and radiological images which show the appropriate measurement lines and markings.
The book is structured according to anatomic sites and pathologies to allow easy access to the relevant measurement methods and classifications. Boxes and tables are used to summarize and highlight important information.
Describes in detail all of the established measurement methods made using
conventional and sectional imaging and provides guidance on:
• What measurements and classifications are important in which diseases
• The practical significance of the different measurements and classifications
