Review This is a fantastic book, easy to read and understand, with high-quality illustrations. For beginners and students of ultrasound use in rheumatology, this book provides a very good explanation of the use of the machine, the physics, what to expect in various rheumatologic diseases, and practical applications in diagnosis, prognosis, and joint injections. -Doody's Book Review Service 2010 RICHA GUPTA, M.D(University of Kentucky College of Medicine)     "Writing for clinical rheumatologists and related professionals, Wakefield (rheumatology, Chapel Allerton Hospital, UK) and D'Agostino (rheumatology, U. of Versailles-Saint Quentin en Yvelines, France) assemble 26 chapters by specialists in rheumatology and radiology from around the world detailing the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound in the diagnosis and monitoring of rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, and other rheumatic and soft tissue disorders in both adult and pediatric patients. The focus is on inflammatory arthropathies. The text originated as a supplement to European League Against Rheumatism Sonography courses and follows a format similar to the courses, beginning with basic principles and ending with an evidence-based review of how ultrasound can be applied in clinical practice. Other chapters address uses in sports medicine, and training and education in various countries. Many images are incorporated. Online access allows readers to search the full text, download PowerPoint images, and watch videos." -Book News, Inc.
