Publication Date: May 2004

This book presents radiology of the shoulder in a unique didactic concept, with careful organization of material under headings, using margin comments that summarize the most important information. The book begins with a chapter on the basic anatomy of the shoulder joint, and shows examples of various projections of standard radiographs, and what these reveal. Arthrography, ultrasound, CT and MRI are included in all parts of the book. Following this introductory chapter on image technique and interpretation, the individual pathologic chapters cover such topics as trauma, degenerative changes, tumors, inflammation and more.

A concise and clearly organized representation of contents in this text allows quick orientation and assimilation of the most important aspects of shoulder imaging.

The author has done a nice job of presenting a vast array of information in a readily accessible format...a useful addition to the library of an experienced radiologist or clinician who wishes to remind him- or herself of the expected findings of a particular lesion and the planned workup. It may also prove useful to a resident studying for board examinations who wishes to quickly synthesize a large amount of material...This text meets the needs of its target audience quite well.--Radiology

"Well laid out and nicely illustrated." -- RAD Magazine

"The book is both a clinical and imaging atlas of the normal and pathological shoulder. Clear drawings and very good quality photographs explain the different aspects in conventional radiology and the images obtained with sonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. In each part, small synoptic tables deal with the goals of imaging and represent very good guidelines. The goal of this book is achieved. The term "strategies" in the book title has been well chosen. Shoulder surgeons and rheumatologists will enjoy this book as a very useful tool, but so will everyone concerned with should pain and diseases, and especially students and practitioners."--Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy
