Название: Imaging of the Hip & Bony Pelvis: Techniques and Applications (Medical Radiology Diagnostic Imaging)
Авторы: A. M. Davies (Editor), K. Johnson (Editor), R.W. Whitehouse
It is my great pleasure and privilege to introduce another volume on modern musculoskeletal imaging edited by A. M. Davies, K. Johnson and R. Whitehouse.
The hip joint and the bony pelvis are anatomical structures that are subject to frequent and various disease processes. Radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, and rheumatologists are confronted in their daily practice with many of these conditions. Due to the continuous progress in diagnostic imaging modalities and new insights into the pathophysiology and biomechanics of the hip joint and bony pelvis there is a need for regular updates of our knowledge in this field.
The concept of this book is based on a comprehensive coverage of both the imaging modalities and the applications of all these techniques to a specifi c anatomic area and all the pathologic conditions related to it.
The short preparation period of this volume – less than 15 months – ensures, as in the other volumes on musculoskeletal radiology in this series edited by A. M. Davies, that the most recent advances of hip joint and bony pelvis imaging are included.
I am greatly indebted to the three editors for their brilliant editorial work and their superb personal contributions. I congratulate them on their judicious choice of contributing authors, all well-known and internationally recognized experts in the field.
I am convinced that this excellent volume will be of great interest for radiologists in training and certifi ed radiologists, and also for orthopedic surgeons and rheumatologists.
It is my sincere wish that this work meets the same success as so many other volumes previously published in the series Medical Radiology – Diagnostic Imaging.
