New Techniques in Interventional Musculoskeletal Radiology 1st Edition PDF
by Mark E. Schweitzer (Editor), Jean-Denis Laredo (Editor)

This reference documents state-of-the-art trends and advancements in the utilization imaging modalities for the analysis of bones and their surrounding soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and blood vessels. Exploring technologies such as ultrasound, MRI, CT, CT arthrography, MR arthrography, and fluoroscopy, this source contains expertly written chapters on preoperative imaging, tumor evaluation, and biomechanics.

While thinking about this book, several thoughts came to mind. The first concerns the importance of procedures in musculoskeletal radiology. Not superficially related to this, but nonetheless important in understanding the relevance of procedures, is politics. Allow me to explain.Several authorities have commented that radiology has many more subspecialty societies than almost any other specialty. They have suggested that this dilutes the political interests of radiology and ultimately may be the seed of its demise and the dissemination of the field into the various clinical specialties that use its services.
On the other hand, the vibrancy of these subspecialties confirms the complexity of radiology and the importance of radiology to the clinical disciplines each of us interacts with every day. This interaction is what enhances the vigor of radiology and, for the authors of this book, the vigor of musculoskeletal radiology. Being in tune to your customers, while understanding imaging technology and three dimensional anatomy, allows us to be intellectually agile.
This intellectual agility of musculoskeletal radiology has led to the rapid evolution of this field within the last decade to decade and a half. We, the editors, consider ourselves fortunate to be on the cusp of this froth and to see the rapid changes that have occurred in musculoskeletal radiology over a relatively short period of time. We have rapidly transitioned from a subspecialty that is predominantly filmed to one that is more dependent, and in some ways codependent, on advanced imaging.
Interestingly, in this rapid evolution there has been no single disruptive technology. All that we’ve done is build on what we have done in the past and our understanding of what new technologies will allow us to do. This brings us to interventional procedures. There is a confluence here: three dimensional imaging and advances in percutaneous and minimally invasive tools combined with a better understanding of the natural history of disease and medical interventions the growth of MR and ultrasound has allowed us to obtain.
As a subspecialty we have progressed in less than two decades from a field where we were mostly limited to arthrography for our musculoskeletal procedures to today, where interventional radiologic techniques and procedures form the largest component of our daily work. This is the focus of this book
