Introduction to Musculoskeletal Ultrasound: Getting Started by Jeffrey A. Strakowski MD

This is the first truly foundational, introductory text designed to help novice practitioners master the fundamentals of musculoskeletal ultrasound. For the new practitioner who has yet to hold a transducer, Dr. Strakowski makes beginning easy and presents detailed step-by-step instructions for operating the equipment, obtaining good images, and successfully interpreting sonograms. Organized for maximum learning value, the book is packed with high-quality color images, tables, and tips to enhance understanding of proper technique and proficiency in musculoskeletal ultrasound.

This "quick start" manual provides a simplified approach to essential physics, terminology, instrumentation and image optimization, proper scanning technique, and ergonomics. It is also designed to instruct in the recognition of the normal sonographic appearance of muscle, nerves, and tendons; other tissue, foreign bodies, masses, and artifacts; and use in interventional procedures. The final chapter offers recommendations for getting started in practice. The book's clear, concise presentation will help new practitioners, residents, and medical students take the first steps in using ultrasound in the musculoskeletal clinic with confidence and skill.

  • Designed to help new practitioners get comfortable quickly with scanning technique and sonographic appearance of musculoskeletal tissue, artifacts, foreign bodies, and masses
