Summary This book provides a comprehensive clinical review of diagnostic and interventional applications of musculoskeletal ultrasound at the point-of-care. As more rheumatologists and other musculoskeletal providers in training and in practice learn the skill of musculoskeletal ultrasound, an increasing number of them will seek study materials for exam preparation and practical knowledge that apply to their clinical practice. Each chapter covers a standardized protocol of joint images with probe placement, and includes numerous examples of common ultrasound pathologies, clearly addressing what kind of pathology to look for with specific ultrasound image views. Review topics are emphasized, and study tools such as key-concept overviews, lists of important studies in the field, and extensive questions for self-assessment are included throughout. Because ultrasound training is moving toward becoming a mandatory part of rheumatology fellowship and has become mandatory in physical medicine and rehabilitation residencies, this book is a valuable educational resource for rheumatologists, physiatrists, and musculoskeletal providers seeking a practical review guide for preparation of certification exams and use in clinical practice.
