· Wide range of diseases and disorders considered.
· Wealth of illustrative material.
· Written by recognized experts in the field.
This is an up-to-date and comprehensive textbook on imaging of the foot and ankle that provides a detailed description of the techniques and imaging findings relevant to this small region of complex anatomy. In the first part of the book, the various techniques and procedures employed when imaging the foot and ankle are discussed in detail. Individual chapters are devoted to radiography, arthrography and tenography, computed tomography and CT arthrography, magnetic resonance imaging and MR arthrography, ultrasonography and intra-articular injections. The second part of the book documents the application of these techniques to the diverse clinical problems and diseases encountered in this anatomical region. Among the many topics addressed are congenital and developmental disorders, trauma, tendon and ligament pathology, compressive neuropathies, infection, the diabetic foot, arthritis, metabolic bone disease, osteonecrosis and osteochondritis, acquired deformities, sesamoid pathology, and tumours and tumour-like lesions. Each chapter is written by an acknowledged expert in the field, and a wealth of illustrative material is included. This book will be of great value to musculoskeletal and general radiologists and orthopedic surgeons.
