Product Description


This is a fantastic book, easy to read and understand, with high-quality

illustrations. For beginners and students of ultrasound use in rheumatology,

this book provides a very good explanation of the use of the machine, the

physics, what to expect in various rheumatologic diseases, and practical

applications in diagnosis, prognosis, and joint injections.

-Doody's Book Review Service 2010

RICHA GUPTA, M.D(University of Kentucky College of Medicine)

"Writing for clinical rheumatologists and related professionals, Wakefield (rheumatology, Chapel Allerton Hospital, UK) and D'Agostino (rheumatology, U. of Versailles-Saint Quentin en Yvelines, France) assemble 26 chapters by specialists in rheumatology and radiology from around the world detailing the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound in the diagnosis and monitoring of rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, and other rheumatic and soft tissue disorders in both adult and pediatric patients. The focus is on inflammatory arthropathies. The text originated as a supplement to European League Against Rheumatism Sonography courses and follows a format similar to the courses, beginning with basic principles and ending with an evidence-based review of how ultrasound can be applied in clinical practice. Other chapters address uses in sports medicine, and training and education in various countries. Many images are incorporated. Online access allows readers to search the full text, download PowerPoint images, and watch videos."

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not enough for a rank beginner Dec 23 2014

I can't find any video clips, only still images on line. Please let me know how to find the videos.
It turns out that 350 pages and $200+ is not enough for this experienced rheumatologist to make much progress as a beginner at ultrasound, even though I first attended a two day course. The book is pretty good and might be perfect for a better anatomist or for someone who already knows how to use an ultrasound machine, but the information it contains is a drop in the bucket of my ignorance. I am still trying to figure out how I can learn to recognize synovitis and erosions. Even when I can see the synovitis with my eyes, nine times out of ten I don't see any increased flow with my machine, much less see it when it is more subtle. Also,the book does not help me figure out how to position the probe to see things - I need pictures, not just words.
When they say that there is a long learning curve for musculoskeletal ultrasound, I did not realize that it is ten times as long as it needs to be because we are sitting alone in our offices with no one to guide us. This makes it really hard to even get started.
3.0 out of 5 stars This book does not contain any useful information regarding scanning technique for different joints Sept. 3 2015

This book is not as good as one would hope. As a rheumatologist, I was expecting more image of pathology detectable on ultrasound. Instead, most chapters list studies saying this is helpful for detecting a certain condition and then listing studies with a contradictory viewpoint, nearly every chapter ends stating that the role of ultrasound for this particular condition remains unknown. There really is not great information about scanning technique or procedure. I would recommend the Book version over Kindle as you get free online access and can download the book on the Inkling app and have both a digital and hardback copy. I highly recommend Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound by Jacobsen (Kindle version) for scanning techniques for each joint.
4.0 out of 5 stars a review from an italian GP Sept. 3 2012
By marco valenti - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The book is complete exaustive and with an up-to-date bibliography. The quality of the images could have been a litte higher. According to the dinamic procedure of US-scanning there should be a larger access to more video-clips.
