Fundamentals of Skeletal Radiology remains a perfect first book on musculoskeletal radiology and a terrific quick review of the subject. With its entertaining writing style and many new and improved imaging examples, turn to the "pink book" for an effective, concise, and enjoyable introduction to musculoskeletal imaging - just as tens of thousands of radiology students, residents, and clinicians have done with previous editions of this medical reference book.

"A clear, concise and quick reference, dipping into the pages is like slipping on a favourite pair of slippers - comforting and reassuring!" (Tracey Thorne, Specialist reporting radiographer, Airedale NHS Foundation Trust - Sept14)

"Some may lament the cover colour and although the fourth edition ‘pink book’ is a more subtle cerise these days, it is still the go-to guide for skeletal radiology and the pearls that every reporter needs in order to build a firm foundation of MSK knowledge"

"Whilst the books primary audience is radiology residents in the USA it is an excellent book for all students of medical imaging and one that I recommend to all those who are developing an interest in skeletal imaging."

Published Reviews

    "A clear, concise and quick reference, dipping into the pages is like slipping on a favourite pair of slippers - comforting and reassuring! Helms’ style is warm, conversational and often humorous which makes for easy reading of complex chapters such as those on arthritis and metabolic bone disease...The overall feel of the book is slicker and smarter and although the pages are now glossy, I am sure they will end up well-thumbed in the hands of radiologists, registrars and radiographers alike." RAD Magazine, Sept 2014

    "...I know my colleagues who deliver modules related to image interpretation have also recommended this book to their undergraduate and postgraduate student radiographers.

    Whilst the books primary audience is radiology residents in the USA it is an excellent book for all students of medical imaging and one that I recommend to all those who are developing an interest in skeletal imaging."
