FUNDAMENTALS OF MUSCULOSKELETAL ULTRASOUND packs a big punch for such a compact book. It teaches the resident, clinician and even medical student, how to perform and read musculoskeletal ultrasounds, while highlighting the basic anatomy needed to perform and interpret ultrasounds and the salient points needed to make diagnosis. Key anatomy, concepts, diseases and even controversies are highlighted, rather than presenting a lengthy tome covering the A to Z's of musculoskeletal ultrasound.
  • Organized in a simple, outline format (emphasizing lists and tables) for easy access to information.
  • Features almost 1200 high quality images that clearly demonstrate essential concepts, techniques and interpretation skills.
  • Provides step-by-step instructions on how to perform musculoskeletal ultrasound techniques and interpret musculoskeletal ultrasound findings.
  • Reviews sonographic anatomy of peripheral joints to help you understand the anatomy so you can interpret ultrasound scans with confidence.
  • Reviews the sonographic appearances of common musculoskeletal pathologies to clearly differentiate one condition from another.

This book is dedicated to my wife Karen and my daughters, Erica and Marie, for their patience and support.
To my parents, Ken and Dorothy, who taught me the value of hard work.
To my residents, fellows, and technologists, who are a joy to teach.
And to my mentors, Marnix van Holsbeeck and Donald Resnick, who continue to amaze me with their knowledge and dedication.
It is my pleasure to present the second edition of the textbook, Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound. While constructing this edition, I was amazed at how the field of musculoskeletal ultrasound has advanced in such a short time interval from the construction of the first edition. The goal of this edition is not simply to update the content but also to inform the reader about such advances in the field. The following is a short summary of the items that are new to this updated edition.
The organization of the textbook is similar to the prior version, focused on specific joints after a brief introduction and chapter on basic pathology concepts. Given the increased role of ultrasound in imaging-guided procedures, a new chapter has been added that reviews interventional musculoskeletal ultrasound. Because ultrasound has also emerged as an important tool in the evaluation of inflammatory arthritis and peripheral nerves, content related to these two topics was increased throughout all chapters. References have also been updated and about 40% of the images are new. In addition, color images are now integrated throughout the textbook.
An exciting addition to this textbook is the availability of online material via . This has allowed an increase in the number of images and content for each chapter. Consequently, Chapters 1 (Introduction) and 2 (Basic Pathology Concepts) have become Web-only chapters to allow for the expansion of other chapters and the addition of the new interventional chapter in the hard-copy version of the textbook. The use of the Web for material has also allowed the addition of over 200 ultrasound imaging cine clips, which has significant educational benefit as they simulate real-time scanning. Lastly, a complete electronic version of this textbook will be available online at
It has been exciting to see the popularity and number of clinical applications of musculoskeletal ultrasound increase over such a short time period. With knowledge of anatomy and pathology as seen with ultrasound and proper scanning technique, musculoskeletal ultrasound can play a significant role in the evaluation of the musculoskeletal system.

I would like to thank Philips for their support: normal ultrasound images were acquired on an iU22 ultrasound system.
