"Each chapter contains anatomy, prevalence and epidemiology, biomechanics, pathology, clinical presentation, imaging and a synopsis of treatment. The international authorship (188 experts from 15 different countries) discuss almost every conceivable aspect of musculoskeletal radiology. This book is an absolute necessary standard and can be recommended without any restrictions by anyone who is interested in imaging of the musculoskeletal system. I wish it would have been available years ago." - Imhof H, Book review. Eur J Radiol (2009) doi:10.1016/j.ejrad.2009.01.031
