Image-guided Intra- and Extra-articular Musculoskeletal Interventions: An Illustrated Practical Guide 1st ed. 2018 Edition
Significant advances have been achieved in musculoskeletal injection procedures during the past two decades, supported by the rapid development of imaging technology. However, these procedures require additional training and expertise not always provided in residency training programs. This comprehensive book covers diagnostic and therapeutic intra- and extra-articular injection procedures for all joints and musculoskeletal regions. Each procedure is explained step by step, with discussion of indications, anatomy, pre- and postprocedural medications, needles, radiological equipment, patient positioning, technique, and aftercare. Potential difficulties are identified and helpful tips and tricks, provided. The lucid text is supported by informative drawings, model photographs, and radiological images. This book will assist beginners in starting to carry out injections by providing clear, precise procedural instructions and guidance on equipment and medications.
