"A must as an inclusive reference text for all radiologists and other physicians who are actively involved in the interpretation of the imaging studies of patients who have musculoskeletal disorders."Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery
"Second to none as a succinct yet sufficiently comprehensive book on musculoskeletal imaging...It has earned the right to rest on the bookshelves of every radiology resident, general radiologist, and aspiring bone radiologist."Radiology
"Mandatory reading for all diagnostic radiology residents....An invaluable reference for any other physician who regularly deals with musculoskeletal disorders."American Journal of Roentgenology
"It is a pleasure to read a textbook, written by authors with selected contributors, who have not only an in-depth knowledge of the subject, but also who have personally contributed a significant portion of medical literature on the topic... a true authoritative book. This book succeeds in presenting the essential content of muskuloskeletal imaging in a form manageable for its readers and can, as the authors hope, be read not only as a book to be initially read in its entirety but available for ready consultation in the reading room of radiologists, but also for anyone involved both in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal diseases. This book is a must for all in this field." Journal of Clinical Imaging, 2005
"It serves as a review source for radiology examinations and as a reference tool for clinical practice." Biophotonics International, October 2005
