Pediatric Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography
This book provides a comprehensive compilation of musculoskeletal ultrasonography (MSUS) fundamentals in pediatric rheumatology with emphasis on imaging techniques, normal anatomy, approaches towards standardization, and the spectrum of pathologic findings seen in the pediatric population. It examines the techniques and pitfalls of MSUS in pediatrics and compares sonoanatomy in pediatric patients versus adults. Chapters cover a range of anatomical sites, including shoulder and arm, elbow and forearm, wrists and hands, hip and thigh, knee and leg, and ankle and feet. The text also discusses the use of ultrasonography in juvenile inflammatory arthritic conditions and sports-related injuries. Finally, the book concludes with a summary of the recent advances in pediatric musculoskeletal ultrasonography. Featuring contributions from a large international group of leaders in the field, Pediatric Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography is an authoritative reference for pediatric and adult rheumatologists, sonographers, radiologists, physiotherapists, and orthopedic specialists.
