MRI of the shoulder

Reviewed by MN Sree Ram

Shoulder joints is one of the most extensively used joints of the human body. Its anatomy is quite complex due to multiplicity of tendons and ligaments which support the osseo-cartilaginous elements. MRI is one modality which gives excellent multiplanar depiction of such complex anatomy. The author builds up the entire approach through chapters on physics of MRI, clinical aspects of shoulder pain, MRI imaging technique and ofcourse the interpretation of normal/abnormal images.

The book is specifically recommended for reference in all MRI centres, busy orthopaedic departments and sports medicine centres.
