There are 17 contributors to this volume. Almost all are diplomates in their respective fields. The best way to learn to read imaging films is to see and compare. This book has many photos of radiographs that are well marked and described, including a chapter on soft tissue that will help in identifying masses and assorted abnormalities.

The focus of this book is disease and diagnosis, not surgery. Positioning is illustrated for imaging. The illustrations, being imaging films, are in black-and-white. The chapters are accented with color tables and charts showing key points in the text. Some color photos, mostly endoscopic, are inserted in the text to add to the diagnostic aspect of the book.

The chapters are:

  • Soft Tissues- General
  • Bones- General
  • Long bones- Juvenile
  • Long bones- Mature
  • Long bones- Fractures
  • Joints- General
  • Shoulder Joint and Scapula
  • The Elbow Joint

  • Distal Limbs- Carpus/Tarsus and Distally
