"This is an impressive compendium of musculoskeletal ultrasound anatomy, pathology, and procedures. One of the keys to understanding musculoskeletal ultrasound is thorough knowledge of anatomy. The anatomy in this book is detailed and current. The illustrations are excellent and the quality of the images is as expected with contemporary ultrasound equipment. In the pathology sections, a helpful number of ultrasound examples are provided for each disease entity -- for example, there are 46 images for muscle injury. As a radiologist, I have found this book especially helpful for discussing findings with my sonographers. The presentation of the material is different on the website than in the book, where only one image can be viewed at a time. This makes comparison of the illustrations and ultrasound images slightly more difficult, making the website not quite as easy to refer to as the book. However, when you compare have access to your entire Amirsys library to the weight of these books, there is no contest - the website means this book is never far from reach." ~B.
