The authors then present an overview of core concepts of image interpretation and step-by-step guidance on how to determine which pulse sequences have been utilized, how to evaluate images, and how to correlate imaging findings with patient history and clinical presentation. The remaining sections of the book present protocols for acquiring and interpreting MRIs of the upper extremity, lower extremity, and spine. Additional chapters cover special considerations for imaging articular cartilage and soft-tissue and bone tumors, as well as advanced techniques such as MR arthrography and MR angiography, correlation with other imaging modalities, and safety issues.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.
EPUBs can also be easily displayed on MACs/PCs via the free ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) software, for example.
