This ambitious work includes everything necessary to acquire a high level of anatomical and diagnostic knowledge of most musculoskeletal pathologies.
The multidisciplinary approach, with contributions from radiologists, rehabilitation specialists, sports physicians, and orthopaedic surgeons gives a different, more enriching and current perspective on ultrasound.
Two aspects of this book are key: the knowledge and experience of the authors, outstanding in their respective specialties, and the exceptional quality of the ultrasound images and anatomical drawings, created by the lead author, facilitating understanding of the most complex issues.
- Authors of nationally and internationally recognized quality and prestige, with years of experience in both practicing and teaching ultrasound.
- Content meeting the needs of those who want to learn advanced musculoskeletal ultrasound, covering both anatomy and pathology.
- In depth reviews of anatomy and pathology in each area, with an approach to ultrasound diagnosis of musculoskeletal conditions incorporating the latest developments in the field.
- Ultrasound images of the highest quality and remarkable anatomical drawings created by the lead author, facilitating understanding of the most complex issues.
