Standard reference values for musculoskeletal ultrasonographyKant, P. The authors of this atlas, both Consultant Radiologists, have provided a seemingly comprehensive visual reference aid to ultrasound imaging of the musculoskeletal system. The book is not specifically written for anaesthetists but offers itself to a very wide readership, including orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists, radiologists, and physiotherapists. It begins with a short foreword, acknowledging that while vast improvements in ultrasound technology allow better image definition, this is still dependent on the examiner's skill. This section could have been improved with ultrasound picture examples to support the text.

Griffith and other leading experts in the field, Diagnostic Ultrasound: Musculoskeletal offers more than detailed, clinically-oriented chapters of ultrasound anatomy, technique, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, reporting, and ultrasound-guided interventional procedures for the entire musculoskeletal system. This wealth of updated information helps you achieve an accurate musculoskeletal ultrasound diagnosis for every patient. Professor James F. He has 25 years of experience working with musculoskeletal ultrasound in a clinical setting from the initial inception of high-resolution ultrasound into clinical practice.
Anatomy and Technique
Objectives: To determine standard reference values for musculoskeletal ultrasonography in healthy adults. Methods: Ultrasonography was performed on shoulders, elbows, hands, hips, knees, and feet of healthy volunteers mean age Diameters of tendons, bursae, cartilage, erosions, hypoechoic rims around tendons and at joints were measured with regard to established standard scans. Mean, minimum, and maximum values, as well as two standard deviations 2 SD were determined. Values for important intervals were determined. The correlation between two investigators was 0. The reliability of follow up investigations was 0.
