Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Imaging (Contemporary Perspectives in Rehabilitation), 3rd Edition

A volume in the Contemporary Perspectives in Rehabilitation Series
Edited by Steven L. Wolf, PhD, PT, FAPTA

Author Lynn McKinnis, the 2009 winner of APTA’s Helen J. Hislop Award for Outstanding Contributions to Professional Literature, presents a straightforward, logical approach to medical imaging for physical therapists.

After introductory chapters on basic radiology, a chapter on how to evaluate radiographs and chapters on advanced medical imaging, the text is organized by anatomic regions and then by joints.

At the heart of each anatomic chapter is a complete set of normal, routine radiographs that include tracings and point-by-point teaching observations. Each chapter ends with a discussion and offers imaging examples for commonly seen traumas and pathologies. The accompanying CD-ROM features exercises that reinforce the content in the text and help you to identify and recognize anatomy and pathologies.

The content is excellent. For the most part, the author does a nice job of presenting the material in an easily understood manner. I would have liked to see more information on normal views of each joint presented, including CT and MRI various views. A reference to a radiographic atlas may be helpful. I would have liked to see more arrows pointing to the part in question. The film may be labled ACL tear for example, but an arrow pointing exactly to where the tear is would be helpful for beginners like my self. More in depth information about fracture hardware and explanation of load sharing vs load bearing would have been nice. There are a number of typos and printing errors. The book lists answers to the chapter review questions but does not include some chapters. On more than one occasion, the book refers the reader back to a table or figure in a previous chapter but the table or figure does not end up being at all connected to why they referred you back.

This book was a nice compliment to learning. nice illustrations and smooth reading. will be able to use as a resource for future, not just the class that i bought it for.

This book arrived in exceptional condition, complete with the associated disc. It arrived quickly and was in the condition as described. Was very satisfied with this purchase.
