"Writing for clinical rheumatologists and related professionals, Wakefield (rheumatology, Chapel Allerton Hospital, UK) and D'Agostino (rheumatology, U. of Versailles-Saint Quentin en Yvelines, France) assemble 26 chapters by specialists in rheumatology and radiology from around the world detailing the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound in the diagnosis and monitoring of rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, and other rheumatic and soft tissue disorders in both adult and pediatric patients. The focus is on inflammatory arthropathies. The text originated as a supplement to European League Against Rheumatism Sonography courses and follows a format similar to the courses, beginning with basic principles and ending with an evidence-based review of how ultrasound can be applied in clinical practice. Other chapters address uses in sports medicine, and training and education in various countries. Many images are incorporated. Online access allows readers to search the full text, download PowerPoint images, and watch videos."
