Description

Essential Musculoskeletal MRI is a clinically based manual written by experts in both musculoskeletal MRI and musculoskeletal medicine. It explains when and why patients should be referred for this type of imaging and is an essential purchase for any student or clinician wishing to hone their MRI reading skills and to interpret their findings in conjunction with patient symptoms. The book assumes no previous knowledge of diagnostic imaging and covers the appearance of normal anatomy under MRI, as well as the radiological features of the most commonly encountered regional pathologies, with emphasis on those with musculoskeletal relevance. The content is regionally organised, rather than driven by pathology, and the focus is clearly on clinical application. Worked clinical examples develop diagnostic thinking and the numerous images help clinicians to recognise patterns.

About Author

Michelle Wessely is currently director of radiology at the Institut Franco-Europeen de Chiropratique (IFEC), Paris/Toulouse, France where she has been based for the past 8 years heading the teaching and clinical radiology programme. Prior to this time, she completed a Fellowship in Musculoskeletal Radiology at the University of California, San Diego, under the direction of Professor Donald Resnick. She has since also completed two shorter fellowships in Cincinnati in 2007 under Dr Pomeranz, concentrating on neuroradiology, as well as musculoskeletal imaging. She has published in a variety of journals, British Journal of Chiropractic, Clinical Chiropractic, Journal of Manipulative Physiological Therapy, Clinical Radiology, Acta Radiologica. She has presented papers at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), American Roentgen Ray Society, European Chiropractic Union on topics including the knee, temoromandibular joint amongst other subjects. Wessely has provided seminars and radiology courses extensively throughout Europe, and North America, pitching the presentations at basic through to advanced levels on the vast spectrum of subjects related to imaging, depending on the needs of the audience. Young is Editor of Clinical Chiropractic, an Elsevier Journal.He has published in a variety of journals: British Journal of Chiropractic; Clinical Chiropractic, Journal of Alternative and Compelementary medcine, Journal of Manipulative Physiological Therapy, European Journal of Hepatologic Gastroenterology. British Dental Journal.He has presented papers at:European Chiropractors' Union conference, British Chiropractic Asociation Spring Conference, College of Chiropractors Pre-Registration Training Scheme National SeminarPrior to chiropractic, Young had a background in journalism, particularly in technical feature writing where it is necessary to explain complicated and complex ideas and principles to a lay or untrained audience. He has an honours degree in physics, a qualification held 0by only three other professionals within the Chiro field. He has considerable experience as a post-graduate educator, having taught Biophysics at Levels 1 and 2 and General Medicine, Neurology and Differential Diagnosis and Level 3. His writing experience is extensive: in addition to his pre-clinical career he has, for the past nine years, been editor of a peer-reviewed, clinical, biomedical journal (Clinical Chiropractic with Elsevier Science since 2002). As such, he is well used to communicating with and for undergraduates, new graduates, experienced clinicians, educators and researchers and would intend bringing these skills to bear in any text book.As final proof of the need for such a text, he has been regularly approached by students, clinicians and educators pleading for a user-friendly, clinically-based text for those working in the field of manual medicine; one that is pitched an appropriate level and can guide from the most basic levels of knowledge to the advanced concepts required in simple, logical and non-mathematical steps.
