„One of the strengths of this book are the schematic drawings, which help to understand the principles of lesion grading and their typical MR features.”
It is hard to believe that seven years have gone by since the 1 st edition of “MRI of the knee” has been published, with its wealth of information, elegant illustrations and high-quality images. In this new and expanded 2 nd edition the authors have managed to refresh and add many new illustrations, but also several new chapters have been added. Functional anatomy and imaging of the proximal tibiofibular joint are described. Sections on the anterolateral knee corner and patella variants and lesions have been added or considerably expanded for better understanding the biomechanics of the MR imaging appearance of lesions. Likewise, the difficult topic of friction, impingement, and entrapment syndromes is broadly covered. The chapters on meniscus, ligaments, cartilage, inflammatory disorders and tumors have been updated with a lot of new illustrations. One of the strengths of this book are the schematic drawings, which help to understand the principles of lesion grading and their typical MR features.
Of course, e-book content is available for the tablet-aficionado, but in my reading room, this book will be ready at hand between other classics of the Radiology textbook literature.
