"To summarize, the book represents an excellent tool for radiologists in training, general radiologists, and also for the referring clinicians, who want to get an overview on the field with a well written text, and who want a practical guide for the clinical approach. Here, the section on procedures and protocols is especially useful. Tables, tips and rules of thumb of obviously very experienced authors provide an easy and instructional access to all the important MSK imaging issues." - Noebauer-Huhmann I. Book review. Eur J Radiol (2009), doi:10.1016/j.ejrad.2009.04.053

A welcome feature is the introduction of common surgical procedures of the shoulder, as well as imaging of the postoperative knee.The anatomical full-color pictures clarify the anatomy, and several tables and boxes concentrate on the essential information. This book is highly recommended for anyone involved in musculoskeletal radiology." Acta Radiolgica, 2009
