Überblick:Buchrückseite This book covers all aspects of imaging diagnosis of shoulder disorders from a clinical perspective. After discussion of relevant imaging techniques a wide spectrum of disorders is addressed in a series of dedicated chapters on rotator cuff injuries and impingement syndromes biceps tendon and rotator interval pathology glenohumeral instability SLAP tears and microinstability shoulder girdle fractures shoulder arthropathies tumors and tumor-like conditions and entrapment neuropathies. Separate consideration is also given to the pediatric shoulder and to preoperative planning postoperative imaging and surgical techniques in patients undergoing shoulder arthroplasty.The unique anatomy and range of motion of the shoulder joint can present a diagnostic challenge. Characterization of soft tissue injuries and radiographically occult osseous pathology is often facilitated by the use of advanced imaging techniques including MRI CT and ultrasound. Readers will find this excellently illustrated book to be an invaluable aid to diagnostic interpretation when employing these techniques. Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Jenny T.
