This book combines orthopedists’ and radiologists’ perspectives to provide a comprehensive overview of the rapidly expanding use of ultrasound in orthopedic surgery. It also highlights the growing awareness of the potential of this non-invasive and portable, real-time imaging tool, which has led to its inclusion in the minimally invasive toolkit of upper limb surgeons.
The book is divided into five parts – shoulder, elbow, forearm, hand and wrist and fingers. Each part focuses on a particular anatomic region or joint, carefully analyzing the sonoanatomy of its nerves, tendons and bones. For each region, experienced experts illustrate how to perform specific techniques under ultrasound control, ranging from classic procedures, like carpal tunnel release, to the treatment of less common conditions.
Covering all the basic and practical aspects of this innovative, multi-disciplinary approach, as well as future perspectives, this unique book is a must-read for all orthopedists, radiologists, sports physicians and physiotherapist wanting to gain insights into this promising field.
• Analyzes in detail the sonoanatomy of the shoulder, elbow, forearm, hand and wrist and fingers
• Combines he radiologists’ and orthopedic surgeons’ points of view on this non-invasive tool
• Presents both basic knowledge on and future perspectives of this promising multidisciplinary approach
